The River Rat is a 1984 independent family film starring Tommy Lee Jones and Martha Plimpton (in her debut role). Filmed in Kentucky, it is set on the banks of the Mississippi River. Plimpton portrays a young teenage daughter who meets her father (Jones), an ex-con just released from prison, for the first time. The two slowly forge a relationship as they rebuild a boat named "The River Rat." But the father cannot escape his criminal past as he is blackmailed by the prison psychiatrist (Brian Dennehy), who believes he knows the location of a large amount of cash money stolen before his imprisonment.
Father and daughter take "The River Rat" on a picturesque trip down the Mississippi River to Memphis, Tennessee in an effort to find the money and elude the prison doctor. Along the way, they learn about each other's lives and create a family bond. A great adventure and very good story! Picture quality of this DVD is about a 7 out of 10 but still very enjoyable!
