Academy Award« winners Tom Hanks (PHILADELPHIA, FORREST GUMP) and Catherine Zeta-Jones (CHICAGO) star in THE TERMINAL, under the direction of Academy Award«-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg (SCHINDLER'S LIST, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN).

THE TERMINAL tells the story of Viktor Navorski (Tom Hanks), a visitor to New York City from Eastern Europe, whose homeland erupts in a fiery coup while he is in the air en route to America. Stranded at John F Kennedy International Airport with a passport from nowhere, he is unauthorized to actually enter the United States and must improvise his days and nights in the terminal's international transit lounge until the war at home is over.

As the weeks and months stretch on, Viktor finds the compressed universe of the terminal to be a richly complex world of absurdity, generosity, ambition, amusement, status, serendipity and even romance with a beautiful flight attendant named Amelia (Catherine Zeta-Jones). But Viktor has long worn out his welcome with airport official Frank Dixon (Stanley Tucci), who considers him a bureaucratic glitch, a problem he cannot control but wants desperately to erase.
