New York's latest airport terminal is the shortlife variety. It is in fact the set of Steven Spielberg's newest film, The Terminal, which opens next month. It stars Tom Hanks as a traveller from an Eastern European country whose government is overthrown while he is in flight, rendering him stateless and condemning him to spend nine months in the international transit lounge. The publicity material talks breathlessly of the effort involved in creating a giant set that includes four working escalators (a first, apparently) and operating concessions from all the major brands. It does indeed reproduce the soulless feeling of most airport lounges - a lack of personality matched by Hanks' costar Catherine Zeta-Jones, who plays an air hostess and Hanks' love interest. Beats John Kerry.
