#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Memphis-based FedEx operations executive Chuck Noland and grad student Kelly Frears have long dated and lived together, and despite each being the love of the other’s life, have not gotten married because of their respective busy schedules, especially Chuck’s as he is more often on business trips than he is at home. That marital status changes when on Christmas Day 1995 as Chuck is rushing off to catch yet another FedEx plane for a business trip, he gives Kelly a ring. That flight experiences technical difficulties, and goes down somewhere in the south Pacific. In a life raft, a relatively unharmed Chuck washes up on shore what he will learn is a deserted island, he unaware what has happened to any of his fellow flight mates, or the plane. However several of the packages on board for delivery do wash up on shore with him, those packages which he initially treats with respect. Chuck realizes that his priority is survival – which primarily means food, water, shelter and fire – and rescue. But survival is also in an emotional sense. To fulfill that emotional need, he has an heirloom pocket watch with Kelly’s photo that she gave him as a Christmas present, and eventually opening the FedEx packages, a Wilson volleyball on which he paints a face and which he names Wilson. As time progresses, Chuck goes through a range of emotions, but if rescue is ever in the cards, he realizes that he has to find a way to get off the island, which is seemingly impossible in his circumstance due to the strong on shore surf he cannot get beyond without assistance. What Chuck may not fully realize is the longer he is not rescued, the harder it will be for him to return to his old life in its entirety if he ever is rescued. Although the thought of Kelly is what largely keeps him motivated to be rescued, Kelly, who probably believes him to be dead, may have moved on emotionally from him in the intervening time.
Plot: Chuck Nolan, a top international manager for FedEx, and Kelly, a Ph.D. student, are in love and heading towards marriage. Then Chuck’s plane to Malaysia crashes at sea during a terrible storm. He’s the only survivor, and finds himself marooned on a desolate island. With no way to escape, Chuck must find ways to survive in his new home.

Underrated, excellent movie
Its such a shame that this movie would receive such bad press. The idea of just a man by himself on an island may seem boring and long-winded yet this movie isn’t. It touches so many emotions, laughter, sadness, fear, tension. When released it was said to be one long advertisement for FedEx however this movie proves to be so much more than this. With a fantastic soundtrack, great storyline, great acting from Tom Hanks, this movie truly is something fantastic. Maybe a bit of a cliché, other than that the movie appears to be faultless and to find that it didn’t make it onto the top 250 saddened me as the movie truly is something to be perhaps even considered a masterpiece.
Cast Away Is A Fascinating Film
Academy Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis and two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks reunite to explore the blessings and heartache of fate and the survival of the human spirit in this moving drama entitled Cast Away.Hanks stars as Chuck Noland, a FedEx systems engineer whose ruled- by-the-clock existence abruptly ends when a harrowing plane crash leaves him isolated on a remote island.Helen Hunt,Nick Searcy, Jenifer Lewis,Chris Noth,Lari White,Vince Martin and Geoffrey Blake co-star to play key supporting roles.This is an exploration of human survival and the ability of fate to alter even the tidiest of lives with one major event.
Cast Away tells the story of Noland, a Fedex engineer who devotes most of his life to his troubleshooting job. His girlfriend Kelly is often neglected by his dedication to work, and his compulsive personality suggests a conflicted man. But on Christmas Eve, Chuck proposes marriage to Kelly right before embarking on a large assignment. On the assignment, a plane crash strands Chuck on a remote island, and his fast-paced life is slowed to a crawl, as he is miles removed from any human contact. Finding solace only in a volleyball that he befriends, Chuck must now learn to endure the emotional and physical stress of his new life, unsure of when he may return to the civilization he knew before.
This film isn’t the first to recognize our modern need for primal tales, but it is among the most accomplished. It plugs straight into our unplugged fantasies.And definitely,it is more than just a similarity with Robinson Crusoe.Tom Hanks gives one of the towering screen performances of all time as his scenes of complete isolation on the island, where barely a sound is heard for minutes at a time, are the best thing about it.Overall,it offers an intelligent script, some of Robert Zemeckis’ most mature directing, and a showcase performance from talented Tom Hanks in this fascinating film.
