Carter Page serves as confidante, companion and card partner to the wives of the most powerful men in America. When one of his clients finds her lover murdered, Carter offers to shield her from scandal by reporting the crime. He becomes a suspect and must turn amateur detective to protect himself.
Taxi drivers, gigolos, and priests are all part of Paul Schrader’s cinema of loneliness, masterfully expanded upon in this tale of a gay male escort. Against a suited backdrop of Washington politics, Woody Harrelson delivers a delicate and fragile performance that grows deeper at every turn.
