  • A convicted arsonist schemes to get out of prison by convincing his debauched wife to seduce his retirement-ready parole officer in director John J. Curran's adaptation of a play by Angus MacLachlan (who also authored the screenplay). His career as a parole officer winding down after years of service, Jack Mabry (Robert De Niro) reluctantly accepts an assignment to reassess inmate Gerald "Stone" Creeson's (Edward Norton) case for an upcoming parole hearing. Convicted of setting a fire to make the murder of his grandparents look like an accidental death, Stone will do anything to get out from behind bars, and his wife, Lucetta (Milla Jovovich), is willing to do whatever it takes to help secure her husband's freedom -- including seducing Jack. Meanwhile, Jack's devoted wife, Madylyn (Frances Conroy), has suffered with the emotional weight of her husband's demanding job for far too long.

    3 stars out of 5 -- "STONE is highly charged with vibrant, and pits Edward Norton against Robert De Niro for two utterly electrifying performances."
    Box Office

    3 stars out of 4 -- "STONE has Robert De Niro and Edward Norton playing against type and at the top of their forms in a psychological duel between a parole officer and a tricky prisoner who has his number."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[D]irector John Curran's handling of this material pays off with the opportunities it affords its actors....Jovovich is genuinely scary -- and funny."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[A] brooding, low-key intrigue....STONE sets up its coordinates smoothly..."
    New York Times

    "De Niro plays a deeply flawed and hypocritical corrections officer with just the right mix of self-righteousness and vulnerability..." -- Grade: B-
