Rent Tequila Sunrise on DVD

Tequila Sunrise

1988 Rated R 1hr 56m

Veteran screenwriter Robert Towne (Chinatown, Swing Shift) wrote and directed this complex thriller with a superb cast. When two unlikely friends, Lt. Nick Frescia (Kurt Russell) and drug dealer Dale McKussic (Mel Gibson), fall for restaurant owner Jo Ann Vallenari (Michelle Pfeiffer), the pressure proves too much for the precarious friendship. Conrad Hall garnered an Oscar nod for his cinematography.
