DIRECTOR: GEORGE LUCAS

CAST: ROBERT DUVALL, DONALD PLEASENCE, DON PEDRO COLLEY, MAGGIE MCOMIE

George Lucas’s visually stunning debut feature takes place in a bleak galaxy far, far away from Star Wars, in an oppressively pristine 25th century future where humanity has been medicated into submission and chemically neutered to maximize work output. With Robert Duvall as the titular dissident who goes off his meds and promptly becomes a love vigilante.
