About

Hurt plays a janitor smitten with TV reporter Weaver. Coincidentally, a murder in his building brings the pair together and he goes to great lengths to keep her interested, in both the story and him. However, problems arise when the real killers (notably Plummer) get wind of their relationship.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Sigourney Weaver, James Woods, William Hurt, Christopher Plummer, Kenneth McMillan, Irene Worth
  • Director: Peter Yates
  • Writer: Steve Tesich

In a nutshell

Weaver and Hurt make an attractive pair, while Yates' follow-up to Breaking Away (also written by Tesich) is both offbeat and full of suspense.
