The Year” noir thriller, this pulse-pounding mystery
begins as reporter Porter Wren (Brody) meets attractive
widow Caroline (Strahovski). When she asks him to solve
the bizarre death of her filmmaker husband (Scott), Wren
is unable to refuse — or resist — her. But when a rich
mogul blackmails him into investigating Caroline, the
reporter realizes this job could cost him everything.
The film is
presented in widescreen in a 2.40:1 aspect ration preserving its

a 5.1 Dolby Digital in Mandarin and English that provides a good complement
to the picture. It also includes English and Spanish subtitles.
