WIN! The Criterion Edition of Lost In America on Blu-ray!

LOST IN AMERICA is a  hysterical satire on Reagan-era values, a high point in the string of restless comedies about insecure characters searching for satisfaction in the modern world that established Brooks’ unique comic voice.

In this hysterical satire of Reagan-era values, written and directed by ALBERT BROOKS (Modern Romance), a successful Los Angeles advertising executive (Brooks) and his wife (Airplane‘s JULIE HAGERTY) decide to quit their jobs, buy a Winnebago, and follow their Easy Rider fantasies of freedom and the open road. When a stop in Las Vegas nearly derails their plans, they’re forced to come to terms with their own limitations and those of the American dream. Brooks’s barbed wit and confident direction drive Lost in America, a high point in the string of restless comedies about insecure characters searching for satisfaction in the modern world that established his unique comic voice and transformed the art of observational humour.
