If this is a dance, the band has left the stand, and the bus boys are already mopping up melted ice.

Audience Reviews for Last Dance

Rick Hayes (Rob Morrow) is a young lawyer who gets a new job and is assigned a clemency case on Cindy Liggett (Sharon Stone) who has been on death row for 12 years for double murder of a wealthy man's son and his girlfriend. Rick tries to save Cindy from execution but her chances for clemency are shaped by local politics. (Jack Thompson plays the Governor, Randy Quaid is Rick's veteran boss and Peter Gallagher is his chief of staff, as well as being Rick's brother.) But Rick is determined to slay the dragons for her against predictably hopeless odds and moves heaven and earth to save her from death by lethal injection as the countdown to D-Day draws closer.
