Screen favorites Colin Firth (What A Girl Wants, Bridget Jones's Diary) and Ian Holm (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, From Hell) star in The Advocate - one of Hollywood's most controversial films in years and described by many as provocative, sexy and fascinating. A courtroom thriller with a passionate edge, it's the story of a dynamic young lawyer (Firth) whose quest for the simple life leads him to a law postition in a small rural town. What he finds instead is a disturbing case of murder, seduction and corruption - a case that reveals the mystery beneath the village's quiet facade. Yet, as he searches for answers, he finds himself drawn into a web of intrigue and betrayal. Don't miss this sexy thriller - a dark story about the many sides of truth, and passion's deadly price.
