Their lives are on the line. Their hearts are out on a limb. The wife of a kidnap victim and the hostage negotiator working with her navigate a brutal world of terrorism that values money over life - and find their tasks complicated by the growing awareness that they’re attracted to each other.
Meg Ryan plays Alice and Russell Crowe is Terry Thorne, the hostage retrieval expert who becomes Alice’s only hope in navigating a high-stakes game where terrorists value money over life, in this suspense-packed film named one of the year’s 10-best films by Time.
Taylor Hackford directs, steadily tightening the emotional vise as Terry and Alice try to smoke out the perpetrators and rescue Alice’s husband (David Morse)… and as both confront the gnawing awareness that they’re attracted to each other.
Taut, thought-provoking and terrific, Proof Of Life is gripping proof that the romantic thriller is forcefully alive.
