Cocktail

Directed by Roger Donaldson • 1988 • United States
Starring Tom Cruise, Bryan Brown, Elisabeth Shue

Tom Cruise’s mid-1980s rise to megastardom continued with this critically savaged but commercially popular look at love and money in “greed is good”–era Manhattan. He’s got swagger to burn as Brian Flanagan, a young, confident, and ambitious bartender who, with the help of a seasoned pro (Bryan Brown), becomes the toast of the Upper East Side. But when he moves to Jamaica and meets an independent artist (Elisabeth Shue), their romance brings a new perspective to the self-centered bartender’s life.
