Ed Harris is a hard-nosed detective who falls under the spell of a bewitching, unhappily married woman (Madeleine Stowe) in this steamy film noir set in small-town Florida. Going against his principles, Harris assists Stowe in a cover-up after she kills her wealthy husband in apparent self-defense.

This absorbing film offers plenty of tension and twists as Harris’ predicament unfolds. Also stars Benicio Del Toro. Rated R.
