Overview
Gene Hackman and Nick Nolte deliver tour-de-force performances in this riveting "jigsaw puzzle" (Los Angeles Times) "that triumphantly combines politics and romance, turmoil and destiny [into] the most exciting and entertaining drama in years" (David Denby, New York Magazine)! From "an edgy and maliciously smart script" (Pauline Kael, The New Yorker) about three reporters caught in a political revolution – and a love triangle – this sure-fire thriller co-starring Joanna Cassidy and Oscar® nominee* Ed Harris will grab you with heart-pounding suspense and never let go.

Russell Price (Nolte) is a gutsy photojournalist who gets caught between his love for reporter Claire Stryder (Joanna Cassidy) and his friendship with her husband, Alex Grazier (Hackman). He's also caught in the horns of a dilemma when he's asked to take sides instead of just pictures in the war between the Nicaraguan government and the Sandinista rebels. But when he loses sight of his objectivity and becomes involved in the skirmish, Russell could lose both his battles and his life, as he comes Under Fire from all sides!
