Summary: Green Card fuses the template of a light romantic comedy with a classic fish-out-of-water scenario. In order to retain her beautiful rent-controlled Manhattan apartment, a beautiful, socially-conscious American woman (Andie MacDowell) has to be married, so she decides to marry a burly French composer (Gerard Depardieu), who is eager to earn a green card so he can stay and work in America. After the marriage, the couple doesn't live together, but when the government's Immigration agents begin to investigate the pair, they are forced to put up a charade to convince the authorities that they are truly in love. Of course, the charade eventually becomes reality. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Brendon Hanley

Internationally renowned French film star Gérard Depardieu made his first bid at Hollywood success with the light romantic comedy Green Card. Director Peter Weir wrote the part specifically for the actor; it was his first English-language role of any note. Though he continued to appear in American productions -- including the big-budget 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992) and the dreadful remake of My Father the Hero (1994) -- few were as well-received as Green Card. The actor is complemented by his appealing co-star, Andie MacDowell, and Weir gives his predictable material a breezy touch. A moderate success, Green Card was clearly not in the same box-office league as Weir's previous mainstream hits, Dead Poets Society and Witness. Weir garnered an Academy Award nomination for his original screenplay. ~ Brendon Hanley, Rovi
