    Release Date:

    In a performance both volatile and graceful, Al Pacino reteams with Sea Of Love director Harold Becker as New York Mayor John Pappas in City Hall, a savvy thriller that`s the first film ever shot inside the lower Manhattan structure that`s ground zero for the city`s government.
    That and other NYC locations provide the vivid settings as an idealistic mayoral aide (John Cusack) follows a trail of subversion and cover-up that may loop back to the man he serves an reveres. Bridget Fonda, Danny Aiello, Martin Landau, Tony Franciosa and David Paymer add more starry brilliance to this gripping tale of power. And the power behind the power.

    A good movie. The DVD only has the trailer and no other features though.
