Tom Hanks towers in Robert Zemeckis’ ambitious epic Cast Away, an existential meditation about men and love and loneliness and survival and a FedEx employee (Hanks) who loses track of time when his delivery plane crashes on a South Seas desert island. (His last words to his girlfriend, played by Helen Hunt: ”I’ll be right back.”) The best part is the long, mesmerizing stretch during which Hanks acts alone, mostly in silence (except when conversing with a volleyball).
