Fatal Attraction

Sharon and I have been going down a movie rabbit hole. After she read Sharon Stone's biography, we watched Basic Instinct and Total Recall. Listening to The Ringer's Rewatchable podcast about Basic Instinct, they talked about Micheal Douglas in Fatal Attraction. We watched the movie on the Friday night of Memorial Day Weekend.

The movie is a 1987 erotic psychological thriller film directed by Adrian Lyne from a screenplay written by James Dearden. It is based on Dearden's 1980 short film Diversion. At the 60th Academy Awards, Fatal Attraction received six nominations: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress (Close), Best Supporting Actress (Archer), Best Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium, and Best Film Editing.

Fatal Attraction stars Michael Douglas, Glenn Close and Anne Archer. The film centers on a married man who has a weekend affair with a woman who refuses to allow it to end and becomes obsessed with him.

Although we liked Basic Instinct more, Fatal Attraction movie holds up better than Total Recall. I enjoyed it. It is definitely rewatchable.
