Buster Academy Award Nomination! 

By Paul Tonks

Helped considerably by a relatively high budget for a 1988 British film, Buster perfectly remade the 1960s caper-film experience. Rock star Phil Collins plays Buster Edwards, who's only one of a gang who all seem doomed to be captured after their 2.5 million train heist. The caper is over within 30 minutes. However, the film is really about the love story between Buster and his doting yet long-suffering wife June (an excellent Julie Walters). When the action switches to sun-drenched Mexico, you just know her loyalty is going to be tested to extremes because that's when Collins's award-winning songs kick in! "Two Hearts" and "Groovy Kind of Love" may not be '60s-styled, but the message is that love always conquers time and place.

Academy Awards

Buster received an Academy Awards nomination for Best Achievement in Music (Original Song; Lamont Dozier - Music, Phil Collins - Lyrics).
