Promising young lawyer Kevin Lomax (Keanu Reeves) has never lost a case--even when his client is
guilty. When Kevin is seduced away from his sleepy hometown in Florida to work for a flashy, charming lawyer (Al Pacino, in
a role he seems born to play), his mother (Judith Ivey) has reservations. But as he works his way up the corporate ladder,
Kevin manages to put them aside, along with his wife's (Charlize Theron) needs and the stirrings of his conscience over knowingly
defending the guilty. However, his vanity won't let him start losing now. As Kevin's career skyrockets, his neglected wife
Mary Ann begins to see evil, violent visions. Hoping a visit from his mother will help, instead Kevin finds himself confronted
with a secret his mother has never told him. As Mary Ann seemingly descends into madness, Kevin begins to suspect his boss
may be much more than he seems, and he finds himself faced with a choice between saving his own life and saving his soul.
Thought-provoking, inventive, and entertaining, director Taylor Hackford's film is reminiscent of psychological horror films
like ROSEMARY'S BABY. Andrzej Bartkowiak's lush, innovative cinematography complements the smart script and dead-on acting.
