Summary: The official tie-in to the DreamWorks film starring Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening, directed by Sam Mendes (The Blue Room, Cabaret)?"Big buzz, fine cast, hot director"-Entertainment Weekly. "This is probably one of the first scripts I have done that didn't go through a rewrite. I believe Steven Spielberg read it on a Saturday night, and on Monday morning he said, 'Let's make this movie and not change a word.' "said Academy Award® winner Kevin
Spacey in an interview about the movie in which he stars with Oscar® nominee, Annette Bening (The Grifters).
