Based on the novel by David Baldacci, Absolute Power is about the ruthlessness of people in power. The President believes that everything he does is beyond reproach, including an affair or two. That leads to murder and everyone around him is involved. There is only one witness, a thief named Luther Whitney. They are sure he'll talk, but when? The Secret Service is determined to keep him quiet, but catching a thief isn't always easy.
Release date: 14 February 1997

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1884 movies items)

" A Career thief named Luther Whitney, played by Clint Eastwood witnesses a horrific crime involving U.S. President Alan Richmond, played by Gene Hackman. The film also marked a reunion between Eastwood and Hackman, and was based on a novel by David Baldacci. Absolute Power was one of half a dozen political thriller films, released during the 90’s. And one that didn’t go as well as In the Line of Fire with critics, and didn’t do well at the box office, either."

"While robbing the home of aging billionaire Walter Sullivan, Luther Whitney is interrupted by an amorous couple entering the building. As Whitney hides, he sees Sullivan's young wife, Christy, and the U.S. President, Alan Richmond. When their affection turns violent, Christy is killed by the Secret Service. Although Whitney flees, he is framed for the murder. Now, he seeks justice with the help of detective Seth Frank. This movie has one of the best premises of any thriller I've ever heard of. "
