Screenwriter Peter Appleton (Jim Carrey) is on the verge of being blacklisted when a car wreck gives him amnesia. Wandering into a small California town, he's mistaken for "Luke," a native son missing since World War II. A family reunion and the reopening of the town's movie theater invigorate the community -- just as "Luke" remembers his true identity. Set in the 1950s, this romantic drama is reminiscent of Frank Capra's classic films.
