Opposites attract in Steven Soderbergh’s lively and witty adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s novel. George Clooney plays a career criminal who escapes prison and embarks on a cat-and-mouse game with a US Marshall played by Jennifer Lopez. Scott Frank was Oscar nominated for his whip-smart screenplay, which brilliantly captures the electric tension between the two mismatched, but mutually attracted, central characters. Fun fact: Michael Keaton plays the same character here as he did in Quentin Tarantino’s Leonard adaptation Jackie Brown.
