|Genre: Crime, Thriller, Drama|
Tagline: The only thing standing between an assassin and his target is a father who must protect his son.
Plot: Though Oscar winner Morgan Freeman is best known for playing noble characters in films such as MILLION DOLLAR BABY and THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, he goes over to the dark side for this thriller. John Cusack (1408) plays Ray Keene, a father who organizes a hiking trip so he can get closer to his son after his wife's passing. But their vacation is interrupted by the arrival of a brutal hit man (Freeman), who will do anything to collect his fee as a contract killer. THE CONTRACT reunites Freeman with his DRIVING MISS DAISY director Bruce Beresford, who also directed the tense film DOUBLE JEOPARDY.
