50th Anniversary! DELIVERANCE was a huge box office & critical success and garnered Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Director, and Film Editing. In the unfamiliar Appalachian backwoods, a weekend of male bonding for four inexperienced campers turns into a gut-wrenching fight for survival against the merciless forces of nature and the brutality of man. Their only escape is a terrifying canoe ride down raging whitewater rapids. If their heartless pursuers don't kill them, the treacherous waters just might. Starring Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, Ned Beatty, and Ronny Cox and featuring the most ominous use of "Dueling Banjos" ever conceived!
“The movie casts a spell through images both ugly and beautiful, and other sounds, none of them really reflecting the idea of “nature in harmony.” All here is dissonance, and the best one can do is find a thread of consolation within.” Glenn Kenny, Decider
