Back to the Future (1985)

Directed by Robert Zemeckis. In this comic fantasy, a typical American teenager of the 1980's is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean "time machine" invented by a slightly mad scientist. During his amazing trip back in time, the teenager must make certain that his parents-to-be meet and fall in love so he can get back to the future. 116 min. ; Credits and other information from the Internet Movie DatabaseSee separate bibliography of reviews and articles about this film
