Batteries Not Included – Edited
When an unscrupulous reall estate developer sends thugs into a deteriorating tenement to get rid of the last five tenants, they need nothing short of a miracle to stay where they are.
In this fantasy presented by Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg, little stands between the brave holdouts and the street. But one night, when all hope seems lost, tiny visitors from outer space mysteriously glide through their windows. As if in answer to their prayers, the incredible creatures begin to turn the tide iwth their magical powers.
Filled with special effects, the amazing sotry of intergalactic warmth stars the acclaimed husband – wife team of Hume Cronyn and Academy Award winner Jessica Tandy as a pair of feisty long-term tenants whose faith is rewarded in ways they never expected.
Spielberg gives us another story dealing with outer space and brings in the power house team of Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy to make it happen. These two actors are so wonderful to watch on screen as they relate to each other. While the story didn’t grab me too much, Cronyn and Tandy did. They are just a joy and such good actors that they can take a dreary story and make it come alive. If you like them, you’ll like “Batteries Not Included.”
