"A work of depth and dimension." —John Huddy, Miami Herald
"It is astonishing to contemplate all that director Steven Spielberg and his writers Hal Barwood and Matthew Robbins, all of them in their theatrical feature debuts, have managed to accomplish." —Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
The Sugarland Express, a gripping drama co-written and directed by a 26-year-old Steven Spielberg (The Fabelmans), was the director’s theatrical film debut. Based on a true story, a desperate mother (Goldie Hawn) attempts to stop her son's adoption by any means necessary—including helping her husband escape prison, kidnapping a Texas state trooper, and leading the police on a wild chase across the state—and wins the hearts of many fans following her story on the news. This film tells the tale of a girl who took on all of Texas to reunite her family...and almost won.
