The Gingerbread Man

Genre: Drama, Mystery and Thriller; Starring: Tom Berenger, Kenneth Branagh, Embeth Davidtz, Robert Downey Jr., Robert Duvall, Tom Berenger, Embeth Davidtz, Robert Downey Jr., Robert Duvall, Daryl Hannah, Famke Janssen; Director: Robert Altman; Author: Robert Altman; MPAA Rating: R

Robert Altman directed this thriller based on a John Grisham story, and it?s tricky and satisfying entertainment. Rick Magruder (Kenneth Branagh), a boozing, womanizing Savannah lawyer, becomes the lover and protector of Mallory Doss (Embeth Davidtz), a desperate waitress who claims she?s being stalked by her crazed-derelict father (Robert Duvall). Is Mallory innocent, or has she seduced Magruder on purpose? The real seduction is Altman?s. He lures us into thinking we?re watching a supple character study, but the movie is brimming with Grisham-esque twists.
