Ceremonies and Ritual in Fiction by Egantx7

Question 11

The events of this story revolve around an industrialist needing a rare mineral to make superconductors, and the islanders on the island with the mineral needing a human sacrifice. In this film, a man who thinks he is dying volunteers as the human sacrifice in return for a comfortable last few months. Identify this 1990 film, the first of four collaborations between Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, which ends with a huge feast, and an attempt at human sacrifice that goes hilariously and romantically wrong.
