From Back Cover:
"...humor, tragedy, sex-- this movie has everything!"
-Rex Reed, NEW YORK OBSERVER
Suzanne Stone (Nicole Kidman) has always dreamed of being on TV - and she's dead-set on making that dream come true. But there is just one obstacle: Larry Maretto, her husband (Matt Dillon). So, Suzanne convinces a love-struck teenager (Joaquin Phoenix) to get Larry out of the way -- for good.
TO DIE FOR is the most critically acclaimed comedy of the year and "Nicole Kidman struts her stuff with enough come-on carnality to singe the screen!" - Peter Travers, ROLLNG STONE
Here's a fun little dark comedy about an ambitious and manipulative woman who is determined to make herself a television star and when her husband gets in her way, she has him taken out.
Oh and Joaquin Phoenix is perfect as the stoner teen who she seduces so that she can convince him to do her dirty work.
Rated R (MPAA)
