Synopsis

Original Theatrical Date: February 14, 1997

Academy Award winner Clint Eastwood directs and stars as a notorious master thief who stumbles upon a bizarre murder involving the President of the United States in the white-knuckle thriller Absolute Power.

Eastwood is a master at steadily raising the stakes in thrillers. Here his mastery is absolute.

He was where he shouldn't have been and saw what he shouldn't have seen. Now, who will believe the word of a career thief and ex-con?

Despite meticulously planning his final heist at a Virginia estate, expert at disguise and career criminal Luther Whitney (Eastwood) gets the surprise of his life when he discovers President Alan Richmond (Gene Hackman) engaged in an extra-marital affair that leaves a woman shot dead. The President's Chief of Staff (Judy Davis) initiates a cover-up implicating Luther as the killer. But enterprising homicide detective Seth Frank (Ed Harris) knows there's more to this mystery. Now, should Luther run ... or stay to fight a conspiracy led by the White House?

Clint Eastwood portrays Whitney and directs this crisp, finely acted thriller based on David Baldacci's best-selling novel.

A stellar cast which includes Gene Hackman, Laura Linney, Judy Davis and Ed Harris creates well-rounded characters that intensify a constantly spiraling game of cat and mouse between Whitney, local police and the highest levels of White House power.

Eastwood is a master at steadily raising the stakes in thrillers. Here his mastery is absolute.
