Six months after the disappearance of Tuscarora, PA businessman Tom Gruneman, his boss, Peter Cable, and his wife, Holly Gruneman, hire Tom's best friend, private detective John Klute to find out what happened to Tom, as the police have been unable to do so, and despite John having no expertise in missing persons cases. The only lead is a typewritten obscene letter Tom purportedly sent to Manhattan actress/model/call girl Bree Daniel, who admits to having received such letters from someone, and since having received several obscene telephone calls as well. The suggestion/belief is that Tom was one of Bree's past johns, although she has no recollection of him when shown his photograph. Bree tricking is more a compulsion than a financial need.

Alan Pakula created one of his most memsmerizing and hauntingly beautiful pieces with this film. The love affair between Donald Sutherland and Jane Fonda is nothing less than one of the most realistic and touching developments put onto film. Watch this movie for just one scene and you'll be amazed - when the 2 principals shop for fruit, watch how he selects a melon, and when Sutherland casually puts his hand on Fonda - it's enough to send shivers down the spine of any woman. This is when we see that great acting is an art too subtle to define and limit with categorical definitions
it simply IS art.
