Fatal Attraction: The Inside Story


A cautionary tale of a one-night stand gone horribly wrong, Fatal Attraction may have scared straying men straight, but sure didn’t scare moviegoers away from the multiplex. This special takes viewers between the sheets of 1987’s thriller hit and reveals the passion and the pathology of Michael Douglas and Glenn Close, one of the most iconic onscreen duos of all time–a pairing it seemed that no one wanted. With interviews from Michael Douglas, Glenn Close, and director Adrian Lyne, you’ll hear how indecision over the film’s leads, a strong critical backlash over its treatment of powerful career women, and an audience reaction so negative that it forced weeks of reshoots, put the production in jeopardy. But despite its struggles, the attraction proved anything but fatal for audiences, and they came back again and again.
