  • 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Executed with unconventional panache and anchored by dazzling performances from Al Pacino and Charlize Theron..."
    Box Office

    "...The film is brightly lit and bizarrely jaunty....Pacino lets loose with his full range of mannerisms..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...Seductive....A lavish-looking, cleverly entertaining morality play with shades of ROSEMARY'S BABY..."
    New York Times

    "...THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE is probably Pacino's finest bad performance since SCARFACE....He emotes with lewd abandon..."
