In 1989, Nicole Kidman, Billy Zane, and Sam Neill starred in the psychological thriller, Dead Calm, a film that focused on a married couple, Kidman and Neill, who, after losing their son in a tragic accident, decide to spend some time at sea alone. They happen upon a stranger played by Billy Zane who has abandoned a sinking ship, and what follows is one of the most underrated suspense thrillers from the ’80s.
In this scene, Nicole Kidman’s character Rae is frantically making a glass of lemonade laced with sedatives before Zane’s character Hughie walks back into the galley. If you’ve never seen Dead Calm, we highly recommend you check it out. It’s one of our favorite thrillers from the ’80s.
Enjoy this look back at the lemonade scene from Dead Calm!
