Cape Fear Trailer - Directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Robert De Niro, Nick Nolte, Joe Don Baker, Robert Mitchum, Gregory Peck.
Sam Bowden is a small-town corporate attorney and "Leave It to Beaver"-esque family-man.
Max Cady is a tattooed, cigar-smoking, bible-quoting, psychotic rapist.
What do they have in common?
Fourteen years, ago Sam was a public defender assigned to Max Cady's rape trial, and he made a serious error: he hid a document from his illiterate client that could have gotten him acquitted.
Now, the cagey, bibliophile Cady has been released, and he intends to teach Sam Bowden and his family a thing or two about loss.
Universal - 1991
Cape Fear is a 1991 American psychological thriller film directed by Martin Scorsese and a remake of the 1962 film of the same name.
It stars Robert De Niro, Nick Nolte, Jessica Lange, Joe Don Baker, Juliette Lewis, Robert Mitchum, and Gregory Peck in his final film role.
In addition to Mitchum and Peck, Martin Balsam cameos in the remake; all three starred in the original film.
The film tells the story of a convicted rapist, who, using mostly his newfound knowledge of the law and its numerous loopholes, seeks vengeance against a former public defender whom he blames for his 14-year imprisonment due to purposefully faulty defense tactics used during his trial.
Cape Fear marks the seventh collaboration between Scorsese and De Niro.
The film received positive reviews and received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Actor (De Niro) and Best Supporting Actress (Juliette Lewis).
