The River Wild directed by Curtis Hanson
This electrifying thriller was filmed on actual whitewater rapids in several scenic areas of the country, with Meryl Streep performing most of her own stunts. Kevin Bacon fans will thoroughly enjoy Bacon’s portrayal of steely cold Wade. Fasten your life preserver and get ready for a terrifying ride on The River Wild! If this movie whets your appetite for more danger on the water, check out the excellent 1962 version of Cape Fear starring Gregory Peck and Robert Mitchum, or Jon Voight and Burt Reynolds in the spellbinding classic, Deliverance.
