What Lies Beneath (2000) - Synopsis

What Lies Beneath (2000)

Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer star together for the first time in a suspense-filled thriller from Oscar®-winning director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump (1994)).

It had been a year since Dr. Norman Spencer (Harrison Ford) betrayed his beautiful wife Claire (Michelle Pfeiffer). But with Claire oblivious to the truth and the affair over, Norman's life and marriage seem perfect-so perfect that when Claire tells him of hearing mysterious voices and seeing a young woman's wraithlike image in their home, he dismisses her mounting terror as delusion. However, as Claire moves closer to the truth, it becomes clear that this apparition will not be dismissed, and has come back for Dr. Norman Spencer....and his beautiful wife.
