The “Film After Noir,” series (the Spring 2011 Proseminar in Cinema and Culture) continues this Thursday, April 14, with a screening of Body Heat (1981, Lawrence Kasdan, 113 min.), starting at 7 p.m. in 101 BCSB.

During a South Florida heat wave, Matty Tyler (Kathleen Turner) begins an affair with Ned Racine (William Hurt), who is sleepwalking through a mediocre career as a small-town lawyer with too much time on his hands. Drawn by his lust for Matty, Ned finds himself in over his head in murder and betrayal. Much like Fred McMurray’s Walter Neff in Double Indemnity, Ned winds up with neither the girl nor the money. But at least Ned’s not dead.
