Tagline: One man trapped by destiny, and another bound by duty. They're about to discover what they're willing to fight, and to die for.

Plot: THE DEVIL’S OWN is an intelligent suspense thriller by award-winning director Alan J. Pakula. Francis "Frankie" McGuire (Brad Pitt) is an IRA terrorist fueled by the need to avenge his father's execution, which he witnessed as a child in Belfast, Northern Ireland. McGuire comes to New York under an alias on a mission to acquire missiles for use back home in the Northern Irish fight for independence from the British. Needing a hideout, he's placed in the home of Irish-American Tom O'Meara (Harrison Ford), an ethical family man whose background as a veteran cop presents a perfect cover. However, an unexpected bond develops between the two men, and Frankie finds himself viewing O’Meara as a long-lost father figure. Yet the men’s friendship is doomed by the weight of Frankie’s lies, his secret mission, and the violent world that he belongs to--one that is bound to invade his protector’s house. The film, revealing a complex plot and equally complex characters, was the last directorial effort from Pakula, who died in a tragic car accident.
