Billionaire hedge fund manager Robert Miller (Gere) seemingly has it all: a loving family and a hugely successful company he's about to sell to a major bank for a huge profit. Unfortunately, he's keeping up a facade: an investment gone bad created a whopping 400 million dollar hole which he cooked the books and took out a loan to cover up, which could land him in jail for a long time. His only hope is for the sale to go forward so that the money is replaced but the prospective buyer seems to be stalling. To make matters worse, Miller is also cheating on his wife with a young artist and while driving her to a romantic escapade, he falls asleep and crashes the car, killing her. Miller escapes and has Jimmy, the son of Miller's former motorist, pick him up from the crash site. The crash is then investigated by NYPD Detective Bryer (Roth) who has a massive chip on his shoulder regarding rich people who escape justice. The rest of the movie revolves around Miller juggling to keep his fraud, cheating and manslaughter a secret...but can he do it?

Added DiffLines:

* GreyAndGreyMorality: Miller has commited fraud, adultery and manslaughter and seeks to cover up all three yet he clearly regrets his actions and is trying to save the money and reputations of all involved. Detective Bryer has noble motives and a very relatable desire to see a billionaire pay for the crime he committed for once but goes through increasingly questionable means to do so, culminating in [[spoiler:forging evidence]].

* SympathyForTheDevil: Despite Miller being an embezzler, philanderer and getting a woman killed, Gere manages to imbue him with an astonishing amount of humanity.

It also helps that the path he's pursuing regarding the fraud (getting the sale to come through) is made clear to be the only one that manages to ensure that no one - investors, creditors, employees, etc - loses any money.
