Oscar nominated director Mike Figgis' striking first feature is a tautly constructed crime thriller on the dangers of seduction. Sting stars as Finney, a laconic Newcastle jazz-club owner who crosses the path of crass American gangster Cosmo (Tommy Lee Jones, The Fugitive, JFK). Cosmo wants to involve Finney in a land development deal — if only he'll give up his club. Entering into this increasingly dangerous game of brinkmanship is Kate (Melanie Griffith, Working Girl, Pacific Heights), a former gangster’s moll trying to put her past behind her. Could a relationship with the club’s innocent young apprentice (Sean Bean) offer a shot at redemption? Boasting stunning cinematography by Roger Deakins (The Shawshank Redemption, The Big Lebowski), Stormy Monday is reminiscent of other gritty British thrillers such as Get Carter and The Long Good Friday.
