The Devil's Advocate (1997)

Directed by
Taylor Hackford

Al Pacino plays the arch-fiend with characteristic relish in this lavish drama of temptation, greed and redemption.

Kevin Lomax, played by Keanu Reeves, is a hot shot young Florida lawyer who has been hired by a large and very powerful legal firm. Lomax has never lost a case, but after joining this firm, owned by the extremely charismatic John Milton, he may lose more than he bargained for.

Kevin soon becomes obsessed with work when lured into the high powered legal fraternity. He neglects his wife, Mary Ann (Charlize Theron), who begins to experience strange, demonic visions to which he believes are just hallucinations, but it soon becomes clear that she is in fact glimpsing the terrible truth about their new life.
