About The Counsellor
An opportunistic lawyer known only as 'The Counsellor' (Michael Fassbender) learns the folly of avarice when he tangles with some deadly criminals. He is planning to propose to his more traditional, slightly naïve girlfriend Laura (Penélope Cruz). She suspects that his career may not quite be legitimate, but is too blinded by love to seriously question his activities. When the Counsellor goes to a party held at a penthouse, he meets Reiner (Javier Bardem), a charming entrepreneur who is also a drug kingpin. Reiner's girlfriend Malkina (Cameron Diaz) is a devastatingly attractive, sexually voracious sociopath with her own secret motivations. The pair's glamorous lifestyle spurs the Counsellor into taking more risks, and he becomes involved in a high-stakes drug deal.
