One of the savviest films about all-consuming careers is aptly set in a Washington, DC, television network news bureau, where the professional and personal lives of three colleagues intertwine: hyper-driven producer Holly Hunter, telegenic but empty-headed budding anchor William Hurt and brainy Albert Brooks as the crack journalist who suffers from "flop sweat" when he gets a chance to anchor. Jack Nicholson cameos as the star anchorman whose career the men aspire to, a career which Hunter has the power to promote. James L. Brooks' (AS GOOD AS IT GETS, TERMS OF ENDEARMENT, THE SIMPSONS) film was nominated for seven Oscars®, including Best Picture. DIR/SCR/PROD James L. Brooks. U.S., 1987, color, 133 min. RATED R
