Sam Ellis is a man on the rise - a federal prosecutor on the cusp of a bright political future. But what was meant to be a one-time experience with a high-end escort instead turns into a growing addiction. His moral compass unraveling, his new demon threatens to destroy his life, family and career.
The plot is kind of evident in its title but this is not some smutty story of a politician. Rather it is about a rising star in politics who after years of playing it straight succumbs to temptation. We heard of famous politicians and presidents having affairs on the side.
The directing is pretty good as you can feel the intensity in some scenes and feel the rush Ellis feels. With some better directing, writing and budget off course this could be an even greater film. Part of its allure is the dark or other side of clean and television friendly person. How people need to see and believe in someone like that but the reality is different. Once again the reviewers/sheep have given this a low score without judging this film on its merit. Any reviewer should have the rule that he/she will judge a film by its quality not by the opinions of others.
