DIRECTED BY: Gavin O’Connor
CAST: Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, Jon Bernthal, Jean Smart, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow.
Oscar winner Ben Affleck (“Argo,” upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”) stars in the title role of “The Accountant,” from director Gavin O’Connor (“Miracle,” “Pride and Glory,” “Warrior”).
Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.
“The Accountant” also stars Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick (“Up in the Air,” “Into the Woods”), Oscar winner
J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash,” the “Spider-Man” films), Jon Bernthal (“Fury,” “The Wolf of Wall Street”), Jean
Smart (TV’s “Fargo,” “24”), and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (“Star Trek: Into Darkness”), with Jeffrey Tambor
(TV’s “Transparent,” “The Hangover” films) and two-time Oscar nominee John Lithgow (“Interstellar,” “Terms
of Endearment,” “The World According to Garp”).
RATING: This film has been rated R for strong violence and language throughout.
RUNNING TIME: 128 minutes
