Catherine Tramell is suspect in the brutal murder of her lover, former rockstar Johnny Boz. San Francisco police detective Nick Curran, who has a checkered history, investigates the case but becomes too close to Tramell, who is a master at manipulation. Notable for the crossing and uncrossing of Sharon Stone's legs while she is under interrogation. Numerous references to Hitchcock's Vertigo (1958).
