After the body of a young woman is found in her New York neighbourhood, literature professor Frannie becomes entwined in an erotic affair with the police detective leading the investigation. As her attraction to him grows, so does her suspicion that he may be in some way connected to the murder.
We would expect no less from Jane Campion than a feminist murder mystery that upends genre expectations and Meg Ryan’s rom-com associations! Misunderstood on its release, this complex, erotic, and impressionistic investigation of women’s desire and patriarchal violence is now a modern classic.
