L.A. CONFIDENTIAL

Directed by : Curtis HANSON

     Country : UNITEDSTATES

Length : 135 minutes

Synopsis

Los Angeles in the early 50's. A booming city anxious to shed its small town skin. Through the new medium of television, L.A. is being hyped as a potential utopia and the metropolis of the future. It's practically paradise on earth. That's the image. The reality is something different. From the staid mansions of Hancock Park to the sizzling clubs on the Sunset Strip, it's a city of corruption, double-dealing and dangerous passions. The characters reflect the duality of the city in which they live... Characters whose outward images are often in direct conflict with their inner identity... Characters whose repressed passions threaten everything they have to think they know.
