THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR
Golden Globe nominee Pierce Brosnan ("The Taylor of Panama," "The World Is Not Enough") stars in this steamy romantic thriller as self-made billionaire Thomas Crown (Brosnan), a collector of fine art and gorgeous women. But when a priceless Monet vanishes from a world-class museum, Crown learns there are some things his money can't buy, namely his innocence. Hired to retrieve the painting is a beautiful female investigator (Rene Russo, "Showtime"), who is convinced Crown stole it. But because she is as suspicious of Crown, she is drawn to him, resulting in a high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse. Also starring are Denis Leary ("Ice Age") and Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Faye Dunaway ("Network," "Gia"). Directed by John McTiernan ("Rollerball"), "The Thomas Crowne Affair," is produced by Brosnan and Beau St. Clair ("Evelyn").
