THE ACCOUNTANT
2016, Warner Bros, 128 min, Dir: Gavin O'Connor

Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Ray King (J.K. Simmons) starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, the body count starts to rise. Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow costar in this muscular thriller.
