Here’s the synopsis for the film
Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott and Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men) have joined forces in the motion picture thriller THE COUNSELOR. Along the gritty terrain of the Texas–Mexico border, a respected and recently engaged lawyer (Michael Fassbender) throws his stakes into a cocaine trade worth millions. His hope is that it will be a one-time deal and that, afterward, he can settle into life with his beloved fiancée (Penélope Cruz). But instead, the Counselor finds himself mired in a brutal and dangerous game—one that threatens to destroy everything and everyone he loves.
The Counselor opens in the U.S. on October 25th, 2013.
