Keanu goes up against that little devil Al Pacino in this twisted mind-f@$k of a diabolical thriller from Taylor Hackford. Kevin Lomax is the Florida defense attorney that prosecutors fear and nefarious criminals embrace. Courted by a huge New York law firm helmed by John Milton (Pacino), Lomax doesn’t know what he’s signing up for when he joins the firm and relocates to the Big Apple. As he conquers the courtroom and Pacino attempts to conquer the world, his wife (Charlize Theron) slowly unravels into a nightmare of visions and delusions. This high-stakes game of good and evil is one hell of a fun time!
