Our rating:

Michael Douglas stars as a loving husband and father who has a fling with Glenn Close, then, when he tries to distance himself from her, ends up in the web of a manipulative and increasingly violent woman. Adrian Lyne's Oscar-nominated thriller explores fidelity, sexual mores and the role of career women in the 1980s (and also gave the world the phrase 'bunny-boiler').
