The Guilty ★★ 1999 (R)

Lawyer Callum Crane (Pullman) has a drunken sexual tryst with his new secretary, Sophie (Anwar), and suddenly his life is spiraling out-of-control. Sophie tries to blackmail him when Crane is appointed a federal judge and he decides to hire Nathan (Sawa), a young man who's just been released from prison, to bump her off. But Nathan's not exactly who he seems and, of course, nothing goes exactly as planned. It's a complex thriller with a good ensemble cast. 112m/C VHS, DVD .
