Perhaps Reeve's best performance
30 May 2006 | by karesonySee all my reviews

In a role that will appeal to women more than to men, Christopher Reeve plays a gruff and wildly attractive Alan Pinkerton. Married, he is away on assignment when he meets Rose, whom he suspects of spying for the Confederates. He's way out of his league socially and emotionally, while Rose attempts to manipulate him as she has most of the influential bigwigs in town. Does Rose really know what the impact of her actions are, and is she ready to accept the consequences? Can Pinkerton tend to business as well as learn to dance? The sexual tension is up and Pinkerton's defenses are down. This film is notable also because two of its stars -- Reeve and Snodgress -- are no longer with us.
