Plot Summary: A position with a high-profile law firm is only a couple of weeks away for young hotshot district attorney Willy Beachum (Ryan Gosling). His final case before the transition, however, may also be his most difficult. When the devious and dangerously clever Ted Crawford (Anthony Hopkins) has to stand trial for an attempted murder of his wife, he declines access to a lawyer and defends himself. Thanks to a series of technicalities, he’s able to evade sentencing, angering his ambitious prosecutor. Willy’s ego will not let him rest until he’s brought the guilty man to justice and soon he and Ted are fierce adversaries in a dangerous cat and mouse game. As the two struggle to outwit each other, someone must come away on top and Willy’s excessive drive to finish the job may be his eventual downfall.
