Silver City

Grammatically challenged, "user friendly" gubernatorial candidate Dicky Pilager (Chris Cooper) has just launched a rosy campaign for the citizens of the New West. But things take an unexpected turn when the taping of an environmental political ad ends up with Pilager reeling in a corpse. Enter his ferocious campaign manager, Chuck Raven (Richard Dreyfuss), who hires idealistic journalist turned rumpled private detective Danny O'Brien (Danny Huston) to investigate potential links between the corpse and the Pilager family's enemies. In the tradition of the great films noir, Danny's investigation pulls him deeper and deeper into a complex web of influence and corruption, involving high stakes lobbyists, media conglomerates, environmental plunderers, and undocumented migrant workers. John Sayles' acerbic political satire co-stars Daryl Hannah, Kris Kristofferson, and Tim Roth.
