L.A. Confidential

Director Curtis Hanson and a terrific cast serve up a thrilling tale of police corruption and Hollywood glamour in this film of James Ellroy’s novel. 

Three cops (Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce), a call girl (Kim Basinger), a mysterious millionaire (David Strathairn), a tabloid journalist (Danny DeVito) and the Chief of Detectives (James Cromwell) fuel a plot rife with mystery, ambition, romance and humour. The film captured 1998 Academy Awards® for Best Supporting Actress (Basinger) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Brian Helgeland and Curtis Hanson).
