"Steinbeck lives! This is an absolutely delightful film!" NY News. The producer-writer team that brought you "The Sting" have scored yet another triumph with this beautiful and touching adaptation of the John Steinbeck novel. One of today's hottest stars, Nick Nolte is magnificent in the leading role, as is his lovely co-star Debra Winger. With John Huston providing a wonderfully poetic narration, this is a magical, tragi-comic film... an exquisite experience you won't want to miss!
The film is set in a seedy California town that once harbored a thriving fishing industry. Nolte plays an ex-baseball star leading a quiet life as a marine biologist. Debra Winger plays a young runaway desperately looking for self-esteem... while trying to make a living by selling her charms. Surrounded by an assortment of characters tyring to rise above their burnt-out lives, the two are drawn to each other in a romance they know can't work - but still can't avoid. A lively, lushly filmed story, Cannery Row is a sparkling tale, full of warmth, humor and humanity.
