“This is a party movie with both a dark and a light side,” wrote Kael admiringly; E. Max Frye’s original screenplay became one of Demme’s quirkiest and most divisive movies. Head-turning adventuress Melanie Griffith bewitches salary man Jeff Daniels away from NYC and deeper into New Jersey and Pennsylvania, on a collision course with her criminal ex Ray Liotta. Among the Demme colleagues, friends, and regulars appearing is Sister Carol, reinterpreting a classic song.

A film by Jonathan Demme
