The Year of Living Dangerously is the acclaimed, sprawling 1982 war romance directed by one of film's finest auteurs, Peter Weir (Gallipoli, Dead Poets Society, The Truman Show, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World). Guy Hamilton, an Australian reporter, is determined that his latest assignment covering Indonesia at the time of the 1965 revolution in Jakarta will pay off for him, and it is his good luck that a tiny photographer, Billy Kwan (Hunt) offers to help him make connections. He likes Guy, he believes that Guy is a good man and will help to get the true story of what is happening in Indonesia out to the rest of the world. What he doesn't count on is Guy's ambition and his journalistic commitment. Neither does the woman he loves, Jill (Weaver), who works for a military attach'. Because of this, she makes a costly mistake.
