Inside Moves is a critically acclaimed drama film that was released in 1980. The movie was directed by Richard Donner and is based on the novel of the same name by Todd Walton. This movie stars John Savage, David Morse and Diana Scarwid in lead roles. The story of Inside Moves revolves around Roary, played by John Savage, who is a suicidal man that has recently attempted to kill himself. He failed in his attempt, but still feels a sense of hopelessness and despair. Roary spends his days drinking in a bar called "Max's Kansas City" where he meets various people with different stories.

One day, Roary meets a former basketball player named Jerry, played by David Morse. Jerry was injured while playing basketball and he is now in a wheelchair. Despite his disability, Jerry is a positive person and has a lot of friends in the bar. Roary becomes friends with Jerry and his group of friends, and they start to hang out together.

As Roary gets to know Jerry and his friends, he begins to see the good in people and starts to believe in himself again. Roary learns that everyone has their own struggles and that there is always hope. The group of friends also includes the love interest of Jerry, a woman named Louise, played by Diana Scarwid.

Throughout the movie, we see Roary's character development as he goes from a man who has lost all hope to a person who finds hope and meaning in life. The story also focuses on the challenges and struggles of people with disabilities, and how they are often disregarded by society.

The film also touches on themes of loyalty, friendship, and second chances. The group of friends are all struggling in their own way, but they all support each other and provide a sense of community. We see the strength of their bond as they help each other through difficult times.

The cinematography of Inside Moves is impressive, with beautiful shots of the city and great use of lighting. The film also has a great soundtrack featuring classic songs of the 60s and 70s.

The performances of the lead actors are all great, with John Savage giving a noteworthy performance as Roary.

Diana Scarwid's performance as Louise is also impressive as she portrays a strong and independent woman who is willing to fight for what she wants.

Overall, Inside Moves is a heartfelt and moving movie that explores the themes of hope, friendship, and second chances. It is a must-watch for anyone who enjoys character-driven dramas with great performances and beautiful cinematography.
