The beauty of Shadowman lies in the brilliant portrayal of the title character by TOM HULCE*.

David (Shadowman) is a Polish refugee seeking the help of a Dutch man (Theo) who helps get these poor souls to safety ... for a price. When it's discovered that David has no money to buy his freedom, Theo tells him he can't stay and has to leave in the morning. But afraid for his life, David remains in the attic (where Theo has stashed him) and becomes a man in the shadows ... Shadowman.

==============> *The tenderness and vulnerability of Shadowman could only be accomplished by the superb acting talents of TOM HULCE. Speaking with an impeccable Polish accent, Hulce makes us care about David from the first moment we see him on screen. If we could, we would reach into the screen and rescue David ourselves. Hulce achieves what every actor strives for in a role ... to make the character so real that the audience wants to see him helped and wants to know all they can about him.

This is, without a doubt, an Oscar-worthy performance and one of TOM HULCE's best!
