Florida lawyer Keanu Reeves is called up to the big leagues in Manhattan by Pacino, flaunting it as a master-of-the-universe law firm chieftain named John Milton (hmmm…) with a penthouse apartment, limitless resources, and lavish-to-disturbing accoutrements (via production designer Bruno Rubeo). As reality warps, Charlize Theron and Connie Nielsen deliver breakthrough performances playing, respectively, Reeves’ unnerved wife and Pacino’s insinuating associate.

A film by Taylor Hackford
