With smoldering sensuality and biting humor, the surprising relationship between the three title subjects is revealed in sex, lies, and videotape, the most talked about erotic comedy of the decade. James Spader (Wall Street, Bad Influence) ran away with the Best Actor prize at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival for his brilliantly understated and seductive performance as Graham, a long lost college friend who drifts back into town and into the lives of John, a self-involved philanderer, his angelic wife, Ann, and her saucy sister, Cynthia. One by one, each is drawn into the very "personal project" Graham is working on, leaving the relationships between them forever transformed. A monumental debut effort from first-time feature director Steven Soderbergh, this comic original includes riveting performances by Peter Gallagher, Andie MacDowell (St. Elmo's Fire) and sizzling newcomer Laura San Giacomo.
