Movie Details:   Jack Nicholson and Jessica Lange star in this remake of the powerful and controversial 1947 film that is in turn based on a novel by James M. Cain. Without the Production Code restrictions that limited the content of the first version, scenarist David Mamet was able to more closely adapt his screenplay to the raw sexuality and gritty violence of Cain's book. The story centers on the passionate affair that violently erupts between a mysterious wanderer (Nicholson) and the wife Jessica Lange of the diner owner for whom he works. The trouble begins when the lovers decide that the only way to be together and have plenty of the money they both crave is to murder her husband.
