Movie Summary

Richard Benjamin
Released:
1988
Rating:
PG

Little Nikita is a dramatic film directed by Richard Benjamin that focuses on Jeff Grant (River Phoenix), an all-around American poster child, whose application into the Air Force Academy uncovers some suspecting evidence against his parents (Richard Jenkins and Caroline Kava), who may or may not be undercover Soviet spies. When FBI agent Roy Parmenter (Sidney Poitier) moves across the street to do some hardcore investigating, Jeff finds himself torn between the life he has known and the potential truth his life has hidden. The search turns into a game of cat and mouse as it seems not only the FBI is interested in where the Grants’ interests lie. As Russian spies, both active and sleeper alike, become smudges on the pavement, it’s up to Jeff, or Nikita as he’s found out to be, to help stop his parents from becoming one of those taken out.
