An all-star cast, featuring Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, and Penélope Cruz, sizzles in this “lurid, adrenaline-fueled thriller” (Alexandra Alter, The Wall Street Journal) from visionary director Ridley Scott and Acclaimed Novelist, Cormac McCarthy.
A talented lawyer (Fassbender) known for doing the right thing for the wrong people decides to put his connections to the test by diving into a treacherous drug deal for some quick cash. But The Counselor soon learns that having it all could mean losing everything.
Cast & Crew
Sexy, complicated, smart, violent. Cool.
An uncommonly erudite thriller built around the pulpiest of stories.
Mr. Scott's seriousness isn't always well served by the scripts he films, but in Mr. McCarthy he has found a partner with convictions about good and evil rather than canned formula.
In its cross-cultural breadth, director Ridley Scott's smart and violent film merits comparison to Steven Soderbergh's "Traffic," but the dialogue delivered by the stellar cast is incomparably McCarthy's.
