Overview
Academy Award winner Al Pacino is an ex-druglord fighting to escape his violent, treacherous past in this crime-action tour de force from acclaimed director Brian DePalma.

Sprung from prison on a legal technicality by his cocaine-addled attorney (Sean Penn), former drug kingpin Carlito Brigante (Pacino) stuns the local underworld when he vows to go straight. Taking a job managing a glitzy, low-life nightclub, he tracks down his onetime girlfriend (Penelope Ann Miller) and rekindles their romance, promising he's changed for good. But Carlito's dream of going legitimate is undermined at every turn by murderous former cronies and even deadlier young thugs out to make a name for themselves. Ultimately, however, his most dangerous enemy is himself. Despite good intentions, Carlito's misguided loyalties and an outmoded code of "honor" will plunge him into a savage life-or-death battle against the relentless forces that refuse to let him go.

Reuniting the star and director of 'Scarface,' 'Carlito's Way' is a powerful, passionate motion picture. 'People Magazine' calls "A great film, visually spectacular, filled with brilliant acting."
