Blood and Wine

Blood and Wine

Directed by Bob Rafelson • 1996 • United States
Starring Jack Nicholson, Stephen Dorff, Jennifer Lopez

Director Bob Rafelson and star Jack Nicholson reunite for this gripping, darkly acidic crime drama, the final installment in what the filmmaker has described as an unofficial trilogy about dysfunctional families that began with FIVE EASY PIECES and THE KING OF MARVIN GARDENS. For wine dealer Alex Gates (Nicholson) it hasn’t been a vintage year; his business is on the rocks, as is his marriage to Suzanne (Judy Davis). His stepson, Jason (Stephen Dorff), hates him; and his mistress, Gabriela (Jennifer Lopez), is demanding commitment. In desperation, Alex conspires with his safecracker buddy, Victor (Michael Caine), to steal a million-dollar diamond necklace from a wealthy client—a crime that, far from solving all his problems, only uncorks a host of treacherous new complications.
