Don’t go in the water!
The peaceful resort town of Amity, Massachusetts has always depended on its thriving summer tourist trade to get through the lean winter months. So when a swimmer is killed by a great white shark, no one wants to take up Sheriff Brody’s (Roy Scheider) suggestion of closing the beach just before the 4th of July weekend.
Soon Brody himself, along with a mercenary shark hunter (Robert Shaw) and an oceanographer (Richard Dreyfuss), is locked in an unbearably tense duel at sea with the deadly creature. With an iconic score by John Williams, this is the film that really put Spielberg on the map.
Contains moderate threat and occasional gory moments.
