A young man (Anthony Edwards) meets and falls in love with a young woman (Mare Winningham) at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, otherwise known as Miracle Mile. They make a date which he misses, and while searching for her accidentally finds out that the US government are about to start a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. A wholly original blend of young love and apocalyptic terror that fits nicely into the 80s subgenre of darkly comic films that take place over the course of one perilous night (After Hours, Into the Night, Adventures in Babysitting). Journalist and Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker awarded it with the honor of “Biggest Lurch of Tone” of any film he’d seen.
