Bridget Gregory has a lot going for her: she\'s beautiful, she\'s intelligent, she\'s married to a doctor. But all of this isn\'t enough, as her husband Clay finds out. After she persuaded him to sell medicinal cocaine to some drugdealers, she takes off with the money, almost a million dollars, and goes undercover in a mid-American smalltown. Because Clay has to pay off a loan shark who\'ll otherwise damage him ...more
Critically-acclaimed, award-winning and highly controversial, Network is proud to announce the release of the stylish and steamy neo-noir erotic thriller The Last Seduction Special Edition on 12th June as a two-disc set.
Linda Fiorentino (Men in Black, Dogma, After Hours) stars as the cunning and conniving femme fatale Bridget Gregory/Wendy Croy – a broad who wants it all, and doesn’t care who she tramples on to get it. Bridget persuades doctor husband Clay (Bill Pullman – Independence Day, Lost Highway) to sell medicinal cocaine to drug dealers for a cool one million dollars, but Bridget decides to run off with the proceeds and her partner is left to face the music in the form of a violent and impatient loan shark.
While hiding out in small-town America waiting for the heat to cool down she embarks upon a passionate affair with local nice guy Mike (Peter Berg – Collateral, Copland, Chicago Hope) and hatches an elaborate scheme that involves cheating husbands, angry wives, insurance policies…and murder.
Directed by respected independent director John Dahl (Rounders, The Great Raid, Red Rock West), The Last Seduction won a number of awards for Fiorentino’s powerful performance, including Best Actress at the Independent Spirit Awards, the London Critics Circle Film Awards and the New York Film Critics Circle Awards. She was also nominated for a BAFTA, yet missed out on an Oscar-nomination due to the film being released on network television before receiving a theatrical launch – making it ineligible due to Academy rules.
Special features included on The Last Seduction Special Edition are:
Extended Director’s Cut of the film with deleted scene insertions as well as the cut of the standard release
The Art of Seduction, a new, exclusive documentary about making the film with Linda Fiorentino, Peter Berg, Bill Pullman, director John Dahl and writer Steve Barancik (Domino, No Good Deed)
B Roll Footage
Commemorative booklet written by Dr Linda Ruth Williams, author of The Erotic Thriller in Contemporary Society
