Overview
Where to find your favorite fast-food hamburger in Paris? How many laundry soap packets does a trip to Atlanta require? Ask Macon Leary, whose guidebooks are revered by home-loving business travelers who loathe being in transit. About matters of the heart, don't ask Macon. He doesn't have a clue. At least, not yet.

This funny, tender film of Anne Tyler's best-seller reteams director Lawrence Kasdan with his Body Heat stars William Hurt and Kathleen Turner as misfiring Macon and wife Sarah, and showcases Geena Davis in her Best Supporting Actress Academy Award®-winning* role of romantically inclined dog-trainer Muriel. Chosen the year's best movie by the New York Film Critics Circle and a nominee for three Oscars® including Best Picture, The Accidental Tourist will leave you glowing.

*1988. Other Nominations: Based on Material from Another Medium (Frank Galati and Lawrence Kasdan) and Original Score (John Williams).
