"An evocative, strangely beautiful film." - The Wall Street Journal
Sam Shepard and Kim Basinger "ignite a sexual bonfire whose embers will haunt you" (People) in this explosive tale of doomed love and loss in the barren, unforgiving West. Based on Shepard's own award-winning play and directed by seven-time Oscar nominee Robert Altman, Fool For Love is "a stunning collaboration" (Newsweek).
Cowboy drifter Eddie (Shepard) reconnects with May (Basinger), the love of his life, in a seedy desert motel - even though she's taken up with a new boyfriend (Randy Quaid). But that's not the only threat to their rekindled passion. A mysterious old man (Harry Dean Stanton) also harbors a secret so dark and forbidden, it could destroy Eddie and May's love forever.
