Synopsis >

Tom Hanks, Jackie Gleason and Eva Marie Saint are unforgettable in the story of a young, ambitious executive whose life is surprisingly affected by the break-up of his parents' marriage. Co-starring Sela Ward, Bess Armstrong and Hector Elizondo. Because of his talent, charm and wisecracking sense of humor, David Basner (Hanks) is a self-made man on the fast track. He loves his job, his bank account is healthy, and women find him irresistible. Then his father Max (Gleason, in his final film performance) calls to give David the news that he and David's mother Lorraine (Saint) are calling it quits after 35 years. Now, besides the pressures of his own busy life, David has the new responsibilities of taking care of his crotchety dad and emotionally supporting his mother. Through these experiences, David gains a new understanding and appreciation of his parents, with whom he thought he had nothing in common. NOTHING IN COMMON is a funny, heart-warming film that struck a chord with audiences (who made it a hit) and showcases the charismatic performance of a young Tom Hanks on his way to Oscar(r)-winning superstardom.
