A changed man issues a call to freedom in Frank Darabont's passionate film honoring fallen heroes, patriotism and the American cinema with magical nostalgia and reverence. Jim Carrey plays a blacklisted screenwriter accused of poisonous Marxist propaganda during the 1950s Red Scare. He suffers temporary amnesia after an alcohol-induced car accident that leaves him washed along the shores of a quaint town, where he is mistaken for a decorated war hero declared missing in action nine years before. The innocent imposter warms the locals' hearts while Los Angeles bigwigs continue their witch hunt for the assumed Communist, up until an inspiring Frank Capra-style speech delivered by Carrey with Jimmy Stewart caliber. The Majestic truly lives up to its title.
