Plot: Director Bruce Beresford's LAST DANCE stars Sharon Stone as Cindy Liggett, a lower-class Southern woman who has spent the previous 12 years on death row for killing two of her teenaged classmates. Her legal appeals seem to have run their course, and the judge who is charged with reviewing her case has never pardoned a murderer. However, Rick Hayes (Rob Morrow), the lawyer appointed by the clemency board, begins to examine the records of her original trial and believes there's evidence for a stay of execution. The prospect of spending her remaining years in prison does not appeal to the disillusioned Cindy, though, and she's indifferent to Hayes and resigned to her death. Hayes, motivated both by a personal interest in Liggett, as well as a desire to prove himself to his contemptuous, politically connected brother (Peter Gallagher), refuses to accept her passivity and gradually persuades her to fight for her life.
