Comments: No Responses
The action/drama feature “Life on the Line” starring John Travolta, Sharon Stone, Kate Bosworth and Devon Sawa, opens theatrically November 18th in the following cities:
Beau Ginner (John Travolta), his “sidekick” Pok’ Chop (Gil Bellows) and his crew of eccentric linemen are scrambling to upgrade the electrical grid in their Texas county on the tight schedule required by their company’s new contract. They work hundreds of feet in the air, on wires carrying as much as 500,000 volts of electricity, with death only inches away.
Beau is haunted by the electrocution death of his younger brother, which left Beau raising his niece, Bailey (Kate Bosworth) on his own. Now Bailey is a young woman, and Beau is determined that she will go to college and have a life “better” than his. Bailey keeps delaying her college plans and can’t seem to let go of her relationship with ex-boyfriend Duncan (Devon Sawa), a “bad boy” lineman whom Beau loathes. Duncan lives with his alcoholic mother (Sharon Stone) in a run-down house and until his recent hire as an apprentice lineman, never held a steady job.
What no one except Bailey knows is that she is pregnant by Duncan. Adding to her worries are another ex, Ron, who is obsessed with Bailey to the point of stalking her, and the rocky marriage of her friend Carline (Julie Benz), who’s husband Eugene is an emotionally fragile lineman and Iraq vet.
As a major storm descends on the county, and the linemen are forced to deal with a series of increasingly dangerous break-downs, all these relationships come to a turning point. Bailey confronts the consequences of her pregnancy; Eugene flirts with suicide; and Ron’s obsession with Bailey becomes something much more serious. In the darkness of a massive blackout, events come to a head, leaving both Bailey and Beau’s lives on the line.
