"An elegant piece of pop paranoia -- Kafka as roller-coaster ride"
-- Owen Glieberman, Entertainment Weekly
Millionaire control freak Nicholas Van Orton (Micahel Douglas) receives an
enigmatic birthday gift from his brother Conrad (Sean Penn), an invitation to
"a profound life experience." After a battery of psychological tests, Van Orton
finds himself trapped in a life and death game with no rules. In the hands
of director David Fincher (Se7en), The Game is more than a paranoid plot puzzle.
"You don't play it. It plays you."
