Affleck plays New York City attorney Gavin Banek in the dramatic thriller directed by Roger Michell. Banek leaves insurance salesman Doyle Gipson (Samuel L. Jackson) at the scene of a car collision, causing him to miss an important court date, but leaves a vital paper at the scene, allowing Gipson to seek revenge. Co-starring William Hurt.
I liked working with Sam Jackson a lot. My memory is of Roger taking what could have easily been a 1970s genre action film and turning it into a rumination on anger and morality.
