Mel Gibson, Sigourney Weaver and Linda Hunt star in this story of a naïve Australian reporter who lands in the middle of a coup during The Year of Living Dangerously. Indonesia, 1965. With the help of diminutive local Billy Kwan (Hunt) and diplomat Jill Bryant (Weaver), Guy Hamilton (Gibson) suddenly rockets to importance as a newsman with access to inside information about the coming coup d'etat. But Hamilton must make a choice: To succeed as a newsman--to report this story to the world--he must betray, and possibly destroy, the two people who love him. Linda Hunt won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as the male Billy Kwan.
