The Majestic is the 2001 Capra-esque period saga from famed writer-director Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Mist). America is recovering from their WWII losses and the cowardly hunt for communism and other supposable threats to society is open. Peter Appleton (Jim Carrey, The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) is suspected of being a communist and loses his job. He crashes his car and end up in the small, forsaken town of Lawson'suffering from amnesia! He gets mistaken for a lost son who returned from the war after all and suddenly, everything goes really easily. Peter (alias Luke Trimble) re-opens the local movie theater with his father Harry (Martin Landau, North by Northwest, Ed Wood), he gets the most beautiful girl in town named Adele (Laurie Holden, The Walking Dead, The Mist) and they throw him parties! Naturally, his memory slowly returns and a huge disappointment for the little community is inescapable.
