Academy Award(R)-nominated superstar Tom Cruise (Best Actor, 1996, JERRY MAGUIRE) lights up the screen as Brian Flanagan, a young and ambitious bartender who becomes the toast of Manhattan's Upper East Side. Raise a glass to COCKTAIL -- now on Blu-ray for the first time ever with an astonishing new digital transfer. When Brian moves to Jamaica and meets an independent artist, their passionate romance brings a new perspective to his flashy, self-centered lifestyle. Academy Award(R)-nominated Elisabeth Shue (Best Actress, 1995, LEAVING LAS VEGAS) and Bryan Brown (GORILLAS IN THE MIST) join Cruise in this exciting drama, sizzling with high-powered performances and a sensational soundtrack. COCKTAIL is the perfect mix on Blu-ray!
This 1988 effort at creating a milestone coming-of-age story with the impact of The Graduate is commendable, but the results are mostly shaky and garish. Tom Cruise plays an ambitious young man who arrives in New York City and becomes known as a flashy bartender in a hot club. After falling for Elisabeth Shue's girl-next-door character, however, his desire for success causes him to travel down a more selfish path with an older woman. The film, directed by Roger Donaldson (Bounty), is built on entirely on appearances (Cruise's star charisma) and flash (the way Cruise and his character's bartending mentor, played by Bryan Brown, toss bottles of booze around). The more interesting and underlying themes, however, particularly the hero's obvious Oedipal dilemmas, are lost beneath this window dressing, as if everyone involved was afraid to commit to the story's intrinsic value. Cruise fans might want to take a look at this, but otherwise there isn't much to recommend it. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
