The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981)

In the heat of passion two things can happen...the second is murder!

Academy Award winners Jack Nicholson and Jessica Lange star in this sexually-charged thriller about the illicit love affair between a drifter and the restless wife of a gruff, middle-aged roadhouse owner.

Torn between a desperate need for each other and their desire for money, they plot a murder which leads to shattering consequences.

Written by David Mamet and directed by Bob Rafelson, Nicholson and Lange smolder and burn in this steamy remake of the 1946 film based on the novel by James M. Cain.

Genre: Drama
Original Theatrical Date: March 19, 1981
