Body Heat


It's hot. It's hot even for Florida. Ned Racine, a thirty-something scruffy lawyer falls for the beautiful Matty. She's unhappy with her marriage - her husband's rich, but he's only interested in business, not her.

Ned and Matty embark on a torrid affair. The heat's oppresive, there's only an occasional breeze that rings the chimes hanging at Matty's lounge doors. Ned has the idea of murdering her inconvenient husband. Or perhaps Matty suggested it.
