He went from the eye of the storm, into the arms of a hurricane.

Forces of Nature

Release Date: March 19, 1999

Ben (Ben Affleck) has to get from New York to Savannah for his wedding to Bridget (Maura Tierney). Ben has everything under control until an eccentric young woman named Sarah (Sandra Bullock) literally falls into his life...and atmospheric conditions become decidedly unstable.

The first hint of disaster comes early when Ben and Sarah’s plane goes skidding off the runway. Ben inadvertently saves Sarah’s life and soon finds that he has inherited an unlikely traveling companion. Despite being detained, derailed and disrobed, panic doesn’t really set in until Ben realizes that he’s developing a definite attraction to the sexy and impetuous Sarah...and the feeling is decidedly mutual.

It seems that man, machine and the forces of nature are conspiring to keep Ben from his vows, leaving him to wonder if this is some kind of cosmic test...and if it is, will he pass?

Forces of Nature, starring Sandra Bullock, Ben Affleck, Maura Tierney, Steve Zahn, Blythe Danner and Ronny Cox, is directed by Bronwen Hughes and produced by Susan Arnold, Donna Arkoff Roth, and Ian Bryce from a screenplay by Marc Lawrence.
