During a Florida heat wave, a none-too-bright lawyer becomes involved in a steamy love affair with a mysterious woman and then in a plot to kill her husband. Hurt and Turner (in her film debut) became stars under Kasdan's direction (the three would reunite for "The Accidental Tourist"). Hot love scenes supplement a twisting mystery with a suprise ending. Rourke's arsonist and Danson's soft shoe shouldn't be missed.
I have seen this movie several times. It is very atmospheric and since I love film noir, this movie was a great fit for me. Kathleen Turner burns up the screen and William Hurt is devine the slightly clueless conspirator. If you have seen Double Indemnity, you can't help but make comparisons. The chemistry between Hurt and Turner will make YOU sweat.
