Quote:

The Insider

recounts the chain of events that pitted an ordinary man against the tobacco industry and dragged two people into the fight of their lives. Academy Award®-winner Al Pacino (1992 Best Actor for Scent of a Woman) gives a powerful performance as veteran 60 Minutes producer Lowell Bergman and Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe (2000 Best Actor for Gladiator) co-stars as the ultimate insider, former tobacco executive Dr. Jeffrey Wigand. When Wigand is fired by his employer -- one of the largest tobacco companies in America -- he agrees to become a paid consultant for a story Bergman is working on regarding alleged unethical practices within the tobacco industry. But what begins as a temporary alliance leads to a lengthy battle for both men to save their reputations, and much, much more. As they soon find out, Corporate America will use all legal means at its disposal to save a billion-dollar-a-year habit. And as the corporate giants soon find out, Bergman and Wigand are honorable men, driven to smoke out the evidence. Also starring Academy Award®-winner Christopher Plummer (2011 Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for Beginners) as anchor Mike Wallace and Gina Gershon, [h]The Insider[/i] will chill you with its cold, hard edge -- and thrill you with its unbelievable twists and turns.
