Anxiety and antagonism returned, however, when the studio executives, still nervous and reticent about the casting of Houston, suggested to Costner and Kasdan that the movie now include scenes that directly address the black-white dynamic of the relationship. Sure enough, we were all feeling the heat with somebody within ten minutes. Plot[ edit ] Rachel Marron is an Academy Award -nominated actress and music superstar who is being sent death threats. Richards are particularly strong reminders of what might have been. However, she cannot call it off because she does not know the killer's identity. Hurt, Rachel begins to defy Frank's security measures, then attempts to sleep with his former Secret Service colleague Greg Portman, whom she meets at a Miami party.

Even when they kiss the night after the death of Rachel's sister, they remain distant. Early on in the show Phil show his topless extremely 'ripped' torso much to the delight of the audience who from then on in wolf-whistle every time he appears on stage, which I'm not exactly sure is the reaction the producers are after for their 'villain'.

It all comes down to that kiss — that act of passion, drama, and intimacy that Costner explained as a gesture of gratitude. Now this brings me on to Phil Atkinson who plays the role of the stalker.

The movie endures not only because of its stunning soundtrack, but because it represents a style of blockbuster entertainment that's different from what is currently fashionable. I know when to become powerful and when to quiet it down. Its short lifespan does not limit its transformative power.
