The meeting changed his life forever. Truckdriver, milkman and aspiring musician Melvin Dummar (Golden Globe-winner Paul Le Mat, American History X) has been down on his luck for what feels like his entire life. He can't keep a job. His wife is threatening to divorce him. And, try as he may, he can't write a hit song. Driving along the highway late one night, he spots an injured stranger on the side of the road. He offers the man a ride anywhere he'd like and the stranger asks to go to Las Vegas. Melvin obliges the man, and they wind up becoming fast friends. Just before he gets out of the car, the man reveals his identity: Howard Hughes (Oscar-winner Jason Robards, All the President's Men). While Melvin has reasons to doubt the man, big news comes on the day of Hughes' deathnews that, if true, will give Melvin the life he's always dreamed of Directed by Oscar-winner Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs) and written by two-time Oscar and Golden Globe-winner Bo Goldman (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest), Melvin and Howard is one of the sharpest, funniest films you'll ever see.
