Kelly McGillis (Witness) and Jeff Daniels (Arachnophobia) spark a fiery chemistry in this old fashioned romantic thriller that boasts superb casting, a skillful and astute script by Walter Bernstein (The Train, Fail Safe) and edge-of-your-seat direction by the great Peter Yates (Bullitt, Robbery). When Emily Crany (McGillis) refuses to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee chairman, Ray Salwen (Mandy Patinkin, The Princess Bride), she's blacklisted and immediately fired from her job. But when she stumbles upon Salwen's nefarious plot to smuggle Nazi war criminals into the U.S., she enlists the help of FBI agent (Daniels) to help her bring Salwen to justice... before he brings an end to them! The great Jessica Tandy (Nobodys Fool) co-stars in this homage to classic Hollywood film noirs.
