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

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.
