Mitch McDeere (Tom Cruise) has just graduated from Harvard Law School and every major law firm in America would like to hire him.  A small Memphis practice named Bendini, Lambert, and Locke shows unusual interest in Mitch though, and offers him not only an attractive salary, but also a new house and car.

Cruise's character is eventually persuaded to work for the firm, but soon afterward the FBI approaches McDeere regarding his new employer's mob connections.  Now he must leave the firm and face death, or else stay with it and go to jail with his colleagues.      

The Firm earned a whopping $270 million internationally, more than six times its budget.  The picture won a People's Choice Award and was nominated for two Oscars, two MTV Movie Awards, and a Grammy
