DOWN & DIRTY:
Drama: A hotshot attorney discovers that working for a large Manhattan law firm can literally be hell.

NITTY GRITTY:
Kevin Lomax (KEANU REEVES) is a hot Florida defense attorney. Having never lost a case, he's drawn the attention of a large Manhattan law firm run by John Milton (AL PACINO), a ruthless man who seemingly never needs any sleep.

The firm woos Kevin, offering him a personal assistant, and a $400 hundred per hour billing practice.

Kevin and his wife, Mary Ann (CHARLIZE THERON), can't turn that down and accept the job. They move into a huge apartment right across the hall from Leamon Heath (RUBEN SANTIAGO-HUDSON), another lawyer at the firm, and his wife Jackie (TAMARA TUNIE).

Milton likes what he sees and quickly assigns Kevin to some of the firm's bigger cases, including one involving Alexander Cullen (CRAIG T. NELSON), a real estate mogul who may have killed three people.

Some at the firm aren't happy with Kevin's meteoric rise through the ranks.

At home and unemployed, Mary Ann tackles the job of decorating their huge apartment and hangs out with Jackie who helps her get adjusted to life in New York. Soon, Mary Ann begins to see things -- evil, monstrous things.

Kevin's mother visits and acts strangely around Milton. Mary Ann begins to feel neglected and a little crazy as Kevin spends more and more time with work and with Milton. Milton admires Kevin for his amazing perception and power.

Once Mary Ann finally has a mental breakdown from her horrific visions, Kevin slowly begins to understand what's going on. As he discovers there's more to Milton's devilish grin than meets the eye, he must decide what to do once he finds himself in a truly hellish situation.

THE ENDING:
Kevin discovers that his mother did the nasty with Milton years ago and that he is Milton's aka 'The Devil's son. So he kills himself. This really POs Milton who wanted an heir to his 'kingdom'. Then POOF! It's like none of the bad stuff really happened. Kevin is reunited with Mary Ann and Milton is sent 'away'.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
The over-the-top acting of Al Pacino.
