Whoopi Goldberg (The Color Purple) headlines alongside Sam Elliott (The Big Lebowski) in the action-packed comedy Fatal Beauty. Detective Rita Rizzoli (Goldberg) teams with partner Carl Jimenez (Rubén Blades, The Counselor) to track down the drug ring responsible for a potent and lethal cocaine hybrid known as Fatal Beauty. Enter Mike Marshak (Elliott), a drug cartel bodyguard and an unlikely ally in Rizzoli’s quest to bring the responsible drug czar to justice. Fatal Beauty allows Goldberg the opportunity to stretch her comedic and dramatic acting muscles. In his film review, Roger Ebert said Fatal Beauty is first and foremost an action movie, but it is also Goldberg’s best work since The Color Purple.
Directed by Tom Holland (Fright Night) from a screenplay by Hilary Henkin and Dean Riesner based on a story by Bill Svanoe, Fatal Beauty co-stars Harris Yulin (Another Woman), Jennifer Warren (Slap Shot), Brad Dourif (Amos & Andrew) and James Le Gros (Point Break).
