Added DiffLines:

''Blood and Wine'' is a 1996 neo-noir thriller directed by Creator/BobRafelson from a screenplay written by Nick Villiers and Alison Cross.

Alex Gates (Creator/JackNicholson) is a wine merchant living in Miami who has distanced himself from his alcoholic wife Suzanne (Creator/JudyDavis) and stepson Jason (Stephen Dorff). Heavily in debt, Alex concocts a plan to steal a valuable diamond necklace from the house of one of his clients, where his Cuban mistress Gabriela (Music/JenniferLopez) works, with the help of safe-cracker Victor (Creator/MichaelCaine). But the plan doesn't go smoothly, not at all helped by Jason becoming attracted to Gabriela, unaware of her relationship with Alex.
!!This film contains examples of:
* LadyDrunk: Suzanne is an alcoholic older woman that has a bit of a bitter, misanthropic personality (through that's less the alcohol and more because of Alex's philandering) that showcases how much of a BigScrewedUpFamily Alex has.
* TheMistress: Gabriela is Alex's Cuban mistress.
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler: After all the troubles he got himself in to get the necklace, Alex, after getting severely injured in a fight with Jason and with an ambulance on the way, has no choice but to dispose of the evidence and throws the necklace into the ocean.]]
