Anything can happen in the heat of the moment…even murder…in this steamy romantic drama starring Lori Singer (Footloose, The Falcon and the Snowman), Anthony Edwards (Gotcha!, Miracle Mile) and Bruce Abbott (Re-Animator, Bad Dreams). The year: 1937. The place: North Carolina’s tobacco country. Lovely 21-year-old Roxy (Singer), isolated on an impoverished farm far from town, minds the baby, minds her husband (Edwards)…and tries not to mind the loneliness. Then one hot summer day a good-looking drifter (Abbott) shows up and sparks in Roxy a passion she’d never known. Who could have known a desire so sweet would lead to murder? With fine supporting turns by Kathy Bates (Misery, Titanic) and Clu Gulager (A Force of One, The Return of the Living Dead), Summer Heat is an intimate, noir-tinged love story with a gorgeously detailed Depression-era backdrop.
