"The Devil's Advocate" Plot Summary.

Keanu Reeves and Oscar-winner Al Pacino star in this sexy thriller about temptation and ambition. Co-starring Charlize Theron, Emmy-winner Craig T. Nelson.

Florida lawyer Kevin Lomax (Reeves) brilliantly defends his guilty clients. Handpicked by John Milton (Pacino), the most powerful and feared attorney in New York, Kevin leaves his Southern roots, joining an exotic world of luxury cars, unlimited expense accounts and penthouse apartments. But his heavenly new career soon turns into hell as Milton's lure of limitless wealth, sex and fame spins out of control.

As the line between fantasy and reality blurs, Kevin no longer sees his employer as just a smooth-talking businessman, but as someone much more ominous. Now, trapped in an underworld of depravity and greed, can Kevin stop a demonic plan to spread evil well beyond the courtroom?
