Fatal Attraction Overview

At a Manhattan book launch, successful lawyer Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas) meets editor Alex Forrest (Glenn Close). They’re thrown together the next day due to a business crisis, and when they go out for drinks, something develops between the two. Dan has a weekend affair with Alex while his wife is out of town with their daughter, visiting her parents.
