MY GIANT

SYNOPSIS:
Sammy (Billy Crystal) a second-rate talent agent who is more devoted to his climb to the top than to his wife Serena (Kathleen Quinlan) and his son Nick (Zane Carney). His work takes him to Romania where he discovers 7'7"giant, Max (Gheorghe Muresan), a Shakespeare-quoting caretaker living in a monastery. Although Max is happy with his humble existence, he does have one wish - to see his long, lost teenage love Lillianna (Joanna Pacula) who moved to New Mexico 22 years ago. Sammy thinks Max could be his ticket out of mediocrity; he thinks he could promote this giant to even greater heights, theatrically speaking of course. And he convinces Max that if he comes to America, he'll make him a big movie star and reunite him with Lillianna.
