"Random Hearts / Hanover Street" 2-DVD Set - Harrison Ford Double Feature

Disc 1: "Random Hearts":

A mature, substantial film about the power of betrayal to reach beyond the grave.

Ford plays a Washington, D.C. detective; Scott Thomas is a Congresswoman in the midst of a re-election campaign. When their spouses die in a plane crash, the cop is convinced they'd been having an affair, and his obsessive, masochistic quest for the painful truth draws him closer to the Congresswoman despite the mutual risks to their careers and domestic privacy. While she hides behind a fa├žade of denial, his agonized investigation makes him simultaneously unappealing (a risk Ford may have taken as a challenge), sympathetic, and sadly compelling.

Pollack takes his own chances by keeping everything so relentlessly downbeat, but anyone receptive to the story will find that "Random Hearts" is a subtly rewarding study of tormented adults who've discovered too late the weaknesses of their seemingly stable marriages. It's anything but cheerful, and a subplot involving a corrupt cop (Dennis Haysbert) is a formulaic distraction. But "Random Hearts" provides welcome relief from dramas that flirt with emotional anguish without delving into its deeper consequences.

A passionate, romantic film with a stellar cast, Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas ignite the secreen as an Internal Affairs sergeant and a Congresswoman who become entangled in a shocking mystery - and an unexpected romance - after their spouses are killed in a plane crash together.

Disc 2: "Hanover Street":

Harrison Ford is impossibly young and handsome as an American pilot in the World War II romance "Hanover Street"; Lesley-Anne Down ("The Great Train Robbery") is stunningly beautiful as the British nurse who falls in love with him, despite being married to a British intelligence agent.

War-torn Europe is the setting for this romantic action/adventure about the fateful entanglements of two men in love with the same woman. Lt. David Halloran (Harrison Ford), a courageous American bomber pilot, and a British nurse (Lesley-Anne Down) accidentally meet during an air raid and fall instantly in love.

Committed to an assignment, David asks her to meet him two weeks later in spite of the fact that she is married. And she does.

Her husband, Paul Sellinger (Christopher Plummer), is a British intelligence officer in charge of a special, dangerous mission behind enemy lines.

As fate would have it, Halloran is chosen to fly Sellinger on the task. When their plane is shot down, the two must work together to complete the mission - and it is only then that Halloran discovers who Sellinger is.
