Overview
Michael Douglas is Nick Curran, a hardboiled detective with a weakness for beautiful women and dangerous relationships. Sharon Stone is Catherine Tramell, a stunning, enigmatic novelist with a talent for seduction and a history of relationships that end in death. As the only suspect in a controversial murder case that the detective is investigating, Catherine ignites Nick's suspicion and his passion, and he soon becomes involved in his most dangerous liaison yet. The chemistry between Douglas and Stone set the screen alight as the body count mounts and the stakes grow higher. Boasting one of the most talked about scenes in film history, Basic Instinct is at once a study in sexual obsession and a ground-breaking thriller.
