    Oscar-winner Kevin Kline heads an all star cast (including Susan Sarandon, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Harvey Keitel and Rod Steiger) in this wildly entertaining murder mystery that`ll leave you gasping for breath. Eleven murders... eleven months. Faced with the grisly acts of a serial killer and mounting pressure from a terrified public, New York City`s Mayor orders Police Commissioner Frank Starkey (Keitel) to reinstate the only man he knows who may be able to find the serial killer: unorthodox ex-cop Nick Sharkey (Kline) who also happens to be Frank`s estranged brother.
    In addition to pursuing the killer, Nick`s hot on the trail of his ex-girlfriend (Sarandon) - now Frank`s wife - and a young witness (Mastrantonio) who also happens to be the Mayor`s daughter! Written by Oscar-winner John Patrick Shanley, directed by acclaimed Irish film-maker Pat O`Connor, and featuring excellent support from Danny Aiello and Alan Rickman, The January Man is a killer comedy...
