Nina Beka (played by Iman), Susan Atwell's (played by Sean Young) best friend, worked at a shop in the Old Post Office Pavilion, a famous Washington, DC landmark located at 1100 Pennsylvania Ave., NW and completed in 1899. It served as Washington's main post office until 1914, and then was converted into offices, and subsequently added shops and a food court. The structure's Clock Tower offers some of the best views in DC. See more »

A brilliant cold war thriller that is as rivetting today as it was when it was made in 1987.
"No Way Out" is one of the most original, suspenseful, tightly-knit thrillers ever made, comparable to John Frankenheimer's "Seven Days in May". Set in the Cold War era, Gene Hackman plays the Secretary of Defense, a married man obsessed with his mistress, the exquisitely beautiful Sean Young...as is her other secret lover, Costner, a Naval Admiral who is the C.I.A.'s Liaison. When Hackman accidentally kills Young in a jealous rage, a cover-up begins to find the notorious, never-seen Russian mole "Yuri" who works within the Pentagon, and to frame him for the murder. Costner is commanded to oversee the operation, and the action begins...and is sustained with the intensity of a race on the Autobahn. The amazing all-star cast also features Will Patton, George Dzunda, Iman and David Paymer. Costner delivers what is perhaps his most subtle performance. What distinguishes "No Way Out" is its brilliant plotting, tautness, and constant surprises...with the ending being the most deliriously mind-blowing surprise of all.
