Screen legend Burt Lancaster gives an outstanding performance as an eccentric oilman who orders a young executive ("Crossing Delancey"'s Peter Riegert) to purchase a quaint Scottish village as the site for a giant oil refinery. Produced by David Puttnam ("Chariots of Fire," "Midnight Express"), with a musical score by Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler ("The Color of Money," "The Princess Bride").

Received Best Screenplay Awards from both the National Society of Film Critics and the N.Y. Film Critics, and won a place on the "top ten" lists of 16 publications including, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and Newsweek. Maltin dubs this "a little gem."

Will is asked to protect him from The Ten – a secret society of cadets dedicated to eliminating from the school those it deems "unfit." Steeped in myth and legend, The Ten's power extends to every corner of Will's life, and he is ultimately forced to risk his career, the love of his closest friends...and his own life.
