John Klute (Donald Sutherland), a small-town detective visiting the Big Apple on a missing-persons case, finds a possible lead when he meets call girl Bree Daniel (Jane Fonda, who won the 1972 Best Actress Oscar for her performance). What begins as an antagonistic relationship between a square family man and a city-dwelling, emotionally closed-off woman slowly becomes a genuine love affair. An expert melding of character study and suspense thriller, and the first of several collaborations between director Alan J. Pakula and cinematographer Gordon Willis.
