The Terminal, 2004 film starring Tom Hanks, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Chi McBride. This is the weird story of an eastern European who finds himself without a country and stranded at JFK airport in New York.
His country went into civil war and until settled America would not acknowledge any citizens and would not fly to that country. Victor (Hanks) must make the airport terminal his home until the war ends as he is not allowed into NYC and can not go home. The result is a relatively funny movie.
I did enjoy the film. I wonder if this sort of thing could actually happen though? Hanks was perfect, Zeta-Jones was adorable and the supporting cast was spot on.
