Description

Drama starring Kevin Spacey as a high-level political lobbyist who becomes embroiled in a corruption scandal. The film is based on the career of Jack Abramoff, who came to national prominence in 2006 when he was convicted of fraud, conspiracy and tax evasion in a case that led to the resignation of several well-placed political offcials. Abramoff (Spacey) and his business partner, Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper), have made a fine living for themselves selling access to US politicians. However, their involvement with Adam Kidan (Jon Lovitz), who has connections to the mob, may be ill-advised...

Synopsis
Self-professed "super-lobbyist" and double-dealing high roller Jack Abramoff (Academy Award-winner Kevin Spacey) watches in vain as his highly lucrative empire starts to crumble thanks to one fateful mistake in this high-energy comedy inspired by real events from director George Hickenlooper (THE MAN FROM ELYSIAN FIELDS, FACTORY GIRL). When Jack and resourceful businessman Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper) team up to exert their influence over some the biggest players in Washington, D.C., their bid to strike it rich pays off, big time. But somewhere between the high-profile deals, high-roller hotel suites, and million-dollar yachts, the profit-loving pair makes the mistake of recruiting a motor-mouthed mob flunky (Jon Lovitz) to earn some extra income under the table. At first the cash is rolling in, but when word gets out that Jack and Michael have ties to the Mob, the resulting scandal turns their life of luxury into a living hell.
