Ridley Scott’s adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s novel “Do androids dream of electric sheep” has rapidly become a classic of the science fiction genre. In Los Angeles, 2019, Deckard, a licensed-to-kill cop is given the task of tracking down and destroying a group of intelligent androids who have hijacked a space shuttle and returned to earth. In the process Deckard has to confront disturbing questions about what makes a human being. “A richly detailed and visually overwhelming trip to the future which sticks with you like a recurrent nightmare.” Stars Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer and Sean Young.
