Blood and Wine Details


[[Performer~P104455~Jack Nicholson~jacknicholson]] reunited with director [[Performer~P107395~Bob Rafelson~bobrafelson]], director of [[Feature~V17654~Five Easy Pieces~fiveeasypieces]] and [[Feature~V27434~The King Of Marvin Gardens~thekingofmarvingardens]], for this violent, downbeat crime drama. Alex ([[Performer~P104455~Jack Nicholson~jacknicholson]]) is a wine dealer whose business is going belly-up, along with his life. His step-son Jason ([[Performer~P19729~Stephen Dorff~stephendorff]]) hates him, his wife Suzanne ([[Performer~P17373~Judy Davis~judydavis]]) has a drinking problem and is the constant target of Alex's abuse, and Alex is having an affair with Gabriella ([[Performer~P144649~Jennifer Lopez~jenniferlopez]]), a domestic worker from Cuba. One of the people that Gabriella cleans for has a diamond necklace worth several million dollars locked in a safe in a bedroom. Desperate for a quick score to get himself out of debt, Alex sees a opportunity for a lot of fast money and hooks up with Victor ([[Performer~P10198~Michael Caine~michaelcaine]]), a career criminal who knows how to open safes but is desperately ill with tuberculosis. [[Performer~P104455~Nicholson~jacknicholson]] and [[Performer~P107395~Rafelson~bobrafelson]] first worked together on the film [[Feature~V21796~Head~head]], starring [[Performer~P50034~The Monkees~themonkees]] ([[Performer~P104455~Nicholson~jacknicholson]] only had a bit part, but he also wrote the screenplay and was credited with producing the soundtrack album). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
