(mbc.net) Kevin Lomax (Keanu Reeves) is a cutthroat Florida attorney who refuses to accept defeat, regardless of a client's guilt or innocence.  After successfully defending a schoolteacher already convicted by public consensus, New York law firm Milton, Chadwick, and Waters expresses interest in hiring Lomax.

He accepts the position and is soon under the tutelage of John Milton (Al Pacino), Kevin's sinister yet fatherly boss.  A case involving the suspicious death of a billionaire's wife and son begins to overwhelm the recent hire; in parallel Lomax begins falling for a coworker as his wife succumbs to mental illness.

The Devil's Advocate was a box office success, earning $152 million internationally -- more than twice its $57 million budget.  The picture was nominated for an MTV Movie Award.
