    Synopsis


    Cape Fear
    Martin Scorsese's remake of Cape Fear provided the director with a box-office success to follow up the critical success of the previous year's Goodfellas. After serving a lengthy prison sentence for a sexual assault, Max Cady (Robert De Niro) comes calling on the man who served as his public defender, Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte). Max begins a campaign of harassment against the man and his family because Bowden buried a report that would have in all likelihood acquitted Cady of the charges against him. Bowden's shaky ethics continue in his personal life as he is considering beginning an extramarital affair with colleague Lori Davis (Illeana Douglas), since he and his wife, Leigh (Jessica Lange) have had a difficult time coming back together since he has admitted to previous indiscretions. Cady infiltrates the family most insidiously by cultivating a relationship with the Bowden's troubled teenage daughte, Danielle (Juliette Lewis), who is all the more susceptible to Cady's advances because of her parents' problems. Robert Mitchum and Gregory Peck, the stars of the original film, have cameo appearances in this version of Cape Fear. De Niro and Lewis were both nominated for Academy Awards for their work in the film. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      A Classic Scorsese/DeNiro Pairing

      This 1991 remake of the 1962 film of the same name brings together the extraordinary directing talents of Martin Scorsese with the star power of Nick Nolte, Jessica Lang, Julliette Lewis and, most importantly, Robert DeNiro. It's a tightly crafted thriller that proves itself very enjoyable in high definition. Special features are acceptable though unsurprising however...

      This is one of the best thriller movies of the last 30 years, and one of Martin Scorsese's best movies of his career. Robert De Niro gives a VERY creepy performance as a man who will go to any length for revenge on the lawyer (Nick Nolte) who didn't do a good enough job defending him years ago. GREAT movie.
