Body Heat

Nothing encourages poor decisions more than a dose of lust and a Miami heat-wave, which is how Ned (William Hurt) and Matty (Kathleen Turner in her cinematic debut) find themselves in a plot to kill of her husband so Matty can inherit his fortune. But not everybody is who or what they seem in this fiendishly devious neo-noir. With a superb supporting cast including Mickey Rourke, Richard Crenna and Ted Danson, Body Heat exudes the sweat of both illicit passions and sweltering summer. Turn the air-conditioning down extra low.
