Under Fire (21-Oct-1983)

Director: Roger Spottiswoode

Writers: Clayton Frohman; Ron Shelton

Music by: Jerry Goldsmith

Producer: Jonathan Taplin

Keywords: Thriller, Nicaragua

Nick Nolte, Gene Hackman and Joanna Cassidy are three journalists covering the revolution in Nicaragua that overthrew Anastasio Somoza. As Nolte becomes more involved, his objectivity is thrown as he assists the propaganda goals of the Sandinistas. Some events mirror the 1979 killing of Bill Stewart, the ABC reporter whose death was captured on videotape. Nolte in particular is at the top of his game in this well-crafted and intelligent romantic thriller.
