Fire with Fire

Duncan Gibbins (1986)

15 Certificate


Our Score
Dull tale of teenage angst which is not as salacious as it first sounds. Prim and proper Virginia Madsen's hormones go into overdrive when she catches sight of mean and moody junior convict Craig Sheffer (A River Runs through It), much to the disapproval of all those around her. Madsen and Sheffer do their best with the clich├ęd material and there's good support from Jon Polito (Miller's Crossing), but the story has been better told elsewhere.


A young woman from a Catholic school and a young man from a nearby prison camp fall in love and must run away together to escape the law, the church and their parents.
