Overview
Campbell Scott, Rebecca Pidgeon, Steve Martin and Ben Gazzara star in director David Mamet's razor-sharp thriller THE SPANISH PRISONER.

Scott stars as Joe Ross, the inventor of "the Process," a top-secret formula which promises to make his company unimaginably rich. But when Joe meets a successful, cynical businessman (Martin), he begins to suspect that his boss will never share the profits. And with that seed of doubt planted, an intricate con game soon falls into place. With as many brilliant twists as The Usual Suspects, THE SPANISH PRISONER is guaranteed to keep you guessing until the final credits.
