Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a mathematical savant who, due to Asperger Syndrome Autism, has very limited personal connections or relationships. He robotically and unemotionally moves through life while employing his keen forensic accounting ability to make a living.

His associations with the mafia, drug cartels, as well as an assortment of international criminals make him the perfect candidate to unravel the accounting books of what appears to be a well-respected corporation run by Lamar Black (John Lithgow).Once employed, Dana Cummings (Kendrick), a lower level accountant (who discovered the discrepancies in the books), becomes Christian’s ally in what appears to be a well-orchestrated attempt on both their lives.

This drama, cloaked as an action movie, is an original plot with surprise twists at the film’s end. This is an entertaining film which offers the audience a few hours of escape into an intriguing thriller. (Abby Myers)
