He went to bed an all-American kid
and woke up the son of Russian spies
Little Nikita is a taut espionage thriller telling of a global game of cat-and-mouse that threatens to turn glasnot into a geo-political holocaust. Sidney Poitier (Deadly Pursuit) and River Phoenix (Jimmy Reardon, Stand By Me) star in this espionage drama about a clean cut all American boy who is shocked to discover that his parents are Russian spies. "Sleepers" planted in the USA for eventual call of duty.
This shocking news put's the boy's life on the line and his survival depends on who gets to him first - the KGB or the FBI agent (Poitier)...
