Cast: Griffin Dunne, Rosanna Arquette, Catherine O’Hara A whirlwind black comedy about urban paranoia, After Hours follows yuppie Paul (Dunne), who, enticed by an alluring blonde (Arquette), dives into the rabbit hole that is post-Midnight Lower Manhattan in the early 1980s. Through a series of misunderstandings, Paul becomes the target of a lynch mob led by a beehived waitress (Teri Garr), a crazy sculptress (Verna Bloom), and a Mister Softee truck driver (O’Hara).
