About Something Wild

Something Wild box art

The boring life of businessman Charles Driggs (Jeff Daniels) suddenly changes when free-spirited Audrey (Melanie Griffith) "kidnaps" him for a weekend trip. They pose as a married couple, attend Audrey's high school reunion and visit her mother. But when Audrey's ex-husband Ray (Ray Liotta) shows up, freshly out of jail, this romantic comedy (smartly directed by Jonathan Demme) takes a turn into thriller territory.
