Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas), a NYC attorney, and his wife Beth (Ann Archer) confront the aftermath of the husband’s affair which turns obsessive and eventually violent when Alex Forrest (Glenn Close) refuses to let go. The highest grossing film of 1987 raises issues of how the public, the actors, and even the psychiatric consultants of the film saw Alex’s behavior from the perspective of the 1980s.
