An anarchic cult classic from 1986, Something Wild shows Jonathan Demme at his most diverse – mixing up a heady cocktail of screwball comedy, road movie, character study and unconventional thriller. Jeff Daniels stars as straight-laced banker Charles Driggs, whose dull life changes when he meets irrepressible free-spirit Lulu (Melanie Griffith). At first their relationship is charged with unpredictable excitement, but things soon take a dark turn when her ex-convict husband shows up and tries to win Lulu back.
