John F. Donovan (Tony Curran) is an oil tycoon who owns a large refinery in the Gulf. He is known for his slick products and for having a glamorous life. His wife, Diane (Sissy Spacek), is struggling to raise their son and run the family business. One day a scientist, Simon (Andrew Garfield), arrives at the refinery and sets up a device which he can access the previously undiscovered oil reserves. Unfortunately, it is unstable and he has to use it only for a short time. Donovan suddenly hears a recording which describes what happened in the past and what is planned for the future. He decides to work for the oil company to find out how to fix the device and how to make the oil companies produce more. He also has to confront the assistant to the CEO, Walter (Christopher Plummer), who was behind the original plan to destroy the oil fields and make more money. In the meantime, the scientist's daughter, Anne (Nicole Kidman), who was about to have an affair with Donovan's son, John (James Marsden), is kidnapped and her boyfriend, Mark (Ben Foster), who was in the background, appears in a disguise to help the father and son. Meanwhile, Diane and Simon have an affair. Soon the father and son become friends. James Marsden is an eccentric character. He is a retired actor and his role in this movie is one of the few roles he is willing to play. The movie is funny and entertaining but it is also serious. I think the movie was very successful in both those aspects. The characters are well portrayed and the storyline was realistic. The music and cinematography are great. The performances are also very good. The casting was a little bit uneven. Tony Curran is the best and Christopher Plummer is the worst. He is not that great as an actor but he did a good job in this movie. Andrew Garfield does a good job in his role but he was not as good as the others. The performances were good but there were some flaws. I think the only flaw was the movie's style. The first half of the movie is entertaining but it is too long. The second half was too long. It felt like the movie was going too fast. The ending felt really rushed. The movie does have its share of flaws but overall it is a good movie with some good parts. I think the movie should be watched by everyone. It is very entertaining and I would recommend it.
