L.A. Confidential

A FILM BY: Curtis Hanson
WRITTEN BY: Brian Helgeland (screenplay), James Ellroy (novel)
STARRING: Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, Kim Basinger


Author James Ellroy In-Person!

Celebrate the 20th anniversary of one of the most potent and stylish cop thrillers ever produced in Hollywood. James Ellroy's epic novel is streamlined into a rough-and-tumble police procedural in which four cops—brilliantly played by Guy Pearce, Russell Crowe, Kevin Spacey and James Cromwell—compete and cooperate to solve the "Nite Owl Massacre"—which only exposes deeper and deadlier levels of corruption in their ranks. Featuring Oscar-winning support from Kim Basinger as the woman Crowe and Pearce fall for. Masterfully directed by the late Curtis Hanson.
