Karen Allen, Charles Martin Smith, and Richard Jaeckel co-stars along with the above-mentioned Bridges in the film which follows this synopsis:

When his spacecraft is shot down over Wisconsin, an alien (Jeff Bridges) arrives at the remote cabin of a distraught young widow, Jenny Hayden (Karen Allen), and clones itself into the form of her recently deceased husband. The alien coerces the shell-shocked Jenny to drive him to a pickup point hundreds of miles away, explaining that if he doesn’t meet his mothership in three days, he’ll die. Hot on their trail are government agents, intent on seizing him, dead or alive. En route, Jenny turns from captive to captivated as the alien re-awakens her humanity.

Bridges was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role. Carpenter directs this romance movie from a screenplay written by Bruce A. Evans and Raynold Gideon (STAND BY ME). The film inspired a short-lived television series of the same name in 1986. Scream Factory's STARMAN Collector’s Edition Blu-ray hits a shelf near you on December 18.
