A wealthy writer who has had terrible experiences with money-hungry girlfriends & ex-wives pretends to be a broke, washed-up novelist to see if the woman he loves wants him for himself or just for his money.
The story of Karen Silkwood, a metallurgy worker at a plutonium processing plant who was purposefully contaminated, psychologically tortured and possibly murdered to prevent her from exposing blatant worker safety violations at the plant.
Director Martin Ritt reunites with Sally Field (Norma Rae) playing a prostitute going on a road trip with drifter boxer Tommy Lee Jones. I think it was intended as a grimy tough rom-com. But whether it's the script or the much rumored bad relationship between Field and Jones, the couple was plagued with anger.
The movie is filmed in a low rent 70s style Grime-o-Vision. It works sometimes like playing pinball in a roadside bar. But mostly it looks like a poorly made indie.
In the end, the relationship never blossoms as it's suppose to. Sally Field does have a good breakdown, but Tommy Lee Jones have the acting range of a grumpy old man.
