Jaws is a 1975 American thriller film directed by Steven Spielberg and based on Peter Benchley's 1974 novel of the same name. In the film, a giant man-eating great white shark attacks beachgoers on Amity Island, a fictional New England summer resort town, prompting police chief Martin Brody (Played by Roy Scheider) to hunt it with the help of a marine biologist (Richard Dreyfus) and a professional shark hunter Quint (Robert Shaw in scene stealing form). Iconic film and arguably the best thing Spielberg has ever done. Watch out for the central USS Indianapolis speech given by Quint out on the boat - get's you every time. Rare chance to see this on the big screen. Altogether now, Dummm Dummm..............Dummmm Dummmm........Dummm Dummm Dummm Dummm Dmmmmm
