William Hurt and Kathleen Turner strike sparks in Lawrence Kasdan's Body Heat, a sexy, haunting tale of desire and skullduggery that echoes 1940s film noirs but is charged with an energy and passion that could only flare in the '80s.
A small-time attorney (Hurt) becomes entranced with a beautiful, young woman (Turner) married to a rich and powerful man. He finds himself trapped in a dangerous web which binds and turns him into the pawn of a calculating and manipulative woman.
Aided by a sultry John Barry score, Kasdan's assured directorial debut foreshadowed the emotional textures he would bring to later films The Big Chill, The Accidental Tourist and Grand Canyon. Sit back and bask in this contemporary classic's wicked warmth.
