Body Heat

Body Heat is a neo noir thriller directed by Lawrence Kasdan. It stars William Hurt and Kathleen Turner. A somewhat inept lawyer falls for the bored wife of a wealthy businessman and they hatch a plan to murder him and steal his money. But plans go awry for Hurt's character or exactly to plan from his wily lover's perspective. It's moody and atmospheric, full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing. The heatwave the town experiences imbues the film with another dimension of intensity and sparks some cracking dialogue. Great supporting roles from Ted Danson and Mickey Rourke. But the film belongs to Turner, she's seductive, masterful and complex.
