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

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.
