Eleni (1985) DVD
As Greece was gripped by civil war in the late ‘40s, peasant woman Eleni (Kate Nelligan) sent her young son Nikola to America...and as a reporter for the New York Times, Nick Gage (John Malkovich) pressed for a bureau assignment to his homeland so he could learn just how his mother died. Powerful adaptation of Gage’s memoir tells the parallel stories of Eleni’s willful and fateful stand against the communist rebels, and the journalist’s hunt for truth and vengeance. Linda Hunt, Glenne Headly co-star. 116 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; theatrical trailers.
