"Fonda's is a virtuoso job. Her acting has a cut-glass clarity that keeps the nightmare in focus." – Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times

Who's the guy lying next to her? How did they meet? All Alex knows is that he's as dead as a toe-tagged John Doe. "He had a heart attack?" Alex's ex asks over the phone. "From a knife in the chest," she retorts.

Two-time Academy Award ® winner* Jane Fonda earned her seventh Oscar ® nomination** as Alex, an alcoholic has-been actress cast in the real-life role of Suspect #1. Panicked at facing the police, Alex runs for it – right into the battered convertible of a washed-up former cop (Jeff Bridges). Their uneasy alliance draws them nearer to each other and closer to the startling truth behind the murder. Director Sidney Lumet (Network, The Verdict) draws strong performances from his leads and an ensemble that includes Raul Julia and Kathy Bates. The murder happened the night before. But the real mystery begins The Morning After.
