Love This Movie! I've been looking for it for years!
Verified purchase
I first saw this movie when it was on TV back in the 90's, and loved it. It's such a dramatically interesting movie about a man (Beau Bridges) named Alan Grant, who is attacked in Omaha, NE, by 2 men, robbed, and then they steal his Ford Explorer after they throw him in the trunk. They dump him near Tucson, AZ, in some shallow water. He was a well known chef and restaurant owner in Omaha, but he can't remember who he is. His family work with police to find him until a badly damaged and decayed body shows up 8 weeks later that is similar enough to him that they believe it's him. They believe him to be dead and bury him. In the meantime, Alan is living on the streets of Tucson; and after being picked up for harassment because he thinks he knows a 10 year old boy who resembles one of his sons, he's taken to the county mental hospital. He manages to remember his name is Alan but thinks his last name might be Gray, which is close to Grant. After he gets away from there, he eventually steals money from a wallet he finds and escapes the police on a bus for as far away as the money will take him. He ends up in a small Arizona town at an inn and restaurant that's owned by a widow with 2 young sons. He builds a life there and becomes her chef as his ability to cook comes back to him. In the meantime, his wife isn't giving up hope that Alan is alive despite her 24 year old son's insistence that she shouldn't keep torturing herself. Anyway, I won't tell you too much more or it will spoil the movie for you. I just wish this movie was available to buy in some format because I'd love to add it to my movie collection.

Great movie, very moving

Great movie, very moving; was searching for the name of it under Beau Bridges movies and found it here to see it again. The middle and end is especially good so hang in there if it seems like a touch drama in the end of the first 1/4 of the movie; it gets better, it gets good.
