Elevator Pitch In the murky world of Washington politics a thief is killed and a young woman falls in front of a subway train, setting an investigative reporter and his new assistant on the path of a conspiracy involving a boyhood friend.
Content Mostly involving people talking a lot, often in a tense atmosphere which is gradually ramped up as the reporters get closer to the truth.
A View We are constantly hit over the head with Russell Crowe’s character traits, grubby, disorganised and uncaring and these and his long hair do not suit him. And I kept worrying that he was going to crash his car because he does not often look out.
