'Devil's Advocate'

Scene from this movie Keanu Reeves is Kevin Lomax, a hotshot lawyer in Gainesville, Fla., who never loses. We watch him turn a seemingly hopeless case into victory. Lomax is promptly recruited by a law firm run by, John Milton (Al Pacino), who has his hands in many worldwide ventures. Milton wants Lomax to bring his winning form to Milton, Chadwick, Waters. He offers Lomax and his wife, Mary Ann, every possible luxury, from great salary to an amazing Manhattan apartment.

It isnít long before other company benefits present themselves. Slowly but surely, Lomax succumbs to temptation. But as things get better, they also get worse. One murder case heís put in charge of smells fishy, and his wife is definitely feeling the strain of playing wife to an aspiring master of the universe. -- Desson Howe
