The Spanish Prisoner

Brief Synopsis: "When a naïve inventor (Campbell Scott) develops "The Process," a top-secret program guaranteed to make billions for his company, the wolves come out to fleece him in this cunning mystery with a masterful sleight of hand from writer-director David Mamet. Powerful performances by Ben Gazarra and Steve Martin -- in addition to plenty of surprises and stings -- permeate this twisty and suspenseful con flick."
