Scott Frank is the one writer for whom Elmore Leonard is happy to be adapte d for the screen. Out of Sight is an exemplary adaptation of Elmore Leonard 's novel and follows Jack Foley, America's most prolific bank robber. Incar cerated in Florida's Glades Correctional Institution, and looking at many y ears of jail time, Foley is determined to get out and stay out this time. B y the clever manipulation of a prison guard he escapes and during the confu sion takes hostage ambitious Deputy Federal Marshal Karen Sisco. Bundled in to the back of the getaway car the couple are brought into a reluctant inti macy and there begins an unlikely, but entirely believable, liaison. This t ricky and amoral romance gathers pace as Foley and Sisco warily circle on a nother in this benchmark modern crime caper. Set in a world of frayed, mora lly ambiguous characters Scott Frank's script deftly mixes suspense, comedy and romance relishing the street-smart dialogue of those who inhabit the f ilm's Detroit and Miami locations. This intelligent and engrossing script, is an outstanding example of contemporary screenwriting at its most assured.
