Julia Roberts and Clive Owen

Julia Roberts and Clive Owen

An ingeniously-plotted romantic crime caper from director Tony (Michael Clayton) Gilroy.

Former MI6 agent Ray Koval (Clive Owen) and one-time CIA operative Claire Stenwick (Julia Roberts) are pitched into a complex tale of corporate treachery and double- and treble-crosses. Owen and Roberts play their parts well, although there is precious little sexual chemistry between them. Slick and suspenseful.
