(1988, directed by Penny Marshall, 104 mins., PG)

Tom Hanks plays a 12-year-old boy who’s transformed into a 35-year-old man by a carnival fortune-telling machine. Elizabeth Perkins plays the sophisticated lady executive who falls for him. One of the most fun body-switching comedies of all time, Big is emotionally genuine and perfectly cast with a memorable star turn by Hanks.

Big is screening as part of The National Bank of Indianapolis 2012 Summer Nights Film Series.
