Changing Lanes

98' - 2002 - Drama, Thriller - Dialogue: English
Director: Roger Michell Composer: David Arnold With: Ben Affleck, Samuel L. Jackson, Toni Collette, Sydney Pollack
Gavin Banek, a young lawyer, is on his way to seal a million-dollar case when he blindsides another driver. That hapless chap happens to be Doyle Gibson, who's also on his way to court – to wage one last fight to keep his estranged wife from taking their two young sons to live in Oregon. Gavin is late, so he blows off the exchange of insurance cards and dismissively shoves a blank check into Doyle's hand. For Doyle, this is tantamount to a slap across the face with a white glove. Worse, the delay will have dire consequences for him and for his family. His chance to strike back comes when Gavin leaves behind a crucial file, the getting and keeping of which will put into play a series of diabolical parries and thrusts between the two men.
