A teenager's life is on the line when he discovers his all-American parents are Soviet spies in this taut espionage thriller. River Phoenix (Stand By Me, The Mosquito Coast) stars as Jeff Grant, a typical California teen who's recently applied to the Air Force Academy. During a routine investigation, veteran FBI agent Roy Parmenter (Sidney Poitier, Shoot To Kill) discovers that Jeff's parents are deep-cover Russian spies planted in the U.S. for eventual call to duty. After 20 years, the day of reckoning has arrived for the Grants, who have been enlisted by master KGB agent Karpov (Richard Bradford) to deal with a renegade Soviet spy. Caught in a lethal crossfire between the FBI and KGB, Jeff is forced to choose between love for his parents, his country and his own survival. With excellent performances from a top-notch cast, Little Nikita is a fast-paced suspense thriller in the tradition of classic Hitchcock.
