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: James Woods, Irene Worth, William Hurt, Sigourney Weaver, Christopher Plummer, Kenneth McMillan
