Nicolas Cage may enjoy working more than any other actor in Hollywood. Exhibit X or so: Grand Isle, a heated slice of southern gothic in which Cage stars as the male half of a creepy married couple who lure a wayward young man (Luke Benward) into their secluded home during hurricane season. His wife (KaDee Strickland) is a seductress who seeks to play the man against her husband, but, like all films bearing the noir label, things aren’t that simple. Kelsey Grammar tries out a very good southern accident as detective on the trail of a murderer. Stephen S. Campanelli directs.
