The cast includes Lily Collins (Lauren Monroe) and Chace Crawford (William) along with Simon Pegg (Morgan Warner / Carson Thomas), Connie Nielsen (Catherine) Patrick Warburton (Archer Monroe), Michael Beach (Harold Thewlis) and Marque Richardson (Scott).
In 2008, Archer Monroe (Patrick Warburton), the patriarch of a wealthy and powerful political family in New York City, passes away suddenly.
Archer’s estate is divided among his family: Catherine (Connie Nielsen), his wife; William (Chace Crawford), his son, a politician running for reelection; and Lauren (Lily Collins), his daughter, a Manhattan District Attorney. Privately, the family attorney Harold Thewlis (Michael Beach) gives Lauren a message from her father that leads her to a secret bunker beneath the family property, where she finds a stranger (Simon Pegg) being held in captivity.
The man identifies himself as Morgan Warner and says he’s been held prisoner for thirty years.
While Morgan is sleeping, Lauren takes a sample of his fingerprints and sends them for identification. Morgan claims he was once a friend and business partner of Archer’s, until one night when they were driving drunk and ended up killing a pedestrian.
#At Archer’s insistence, they covered up the crime before Archer took Morgan prisoner to stop him exposing the murder. In the intervening years, Archer treated Morgan like a confessor and admitted many of his secrets…..that’s enough..watch the movie to find out what happens!
