Los Angeles, 1953. Just beneath the glamorous veneer of Hollywood gossip and movie stars lies a crime-ridden city corrupt to its core. Now, while investigating a brutal murder, three very different police detectives will rediscover a common bond of integrity in the blockbuster film noir thriller L.A. Confidential.

Dense, tangled period cop drama for adults.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this isn't a thrill-ride cops-a-go-go actioner for kids. Laden with vicious homicide, numerous subplots and multiple characters, it depicts deep police-force corruption and entrenched brutality in law-enforcement. Even its "heroic" policemen are badly flawed, self-serving characters. One crusades chivalrously against assailants who batter women; yet he himself becomes one, out of sexual jealousy. Swear words flow thicker than the bloody wounds, and there is much talk of prostitution and sex.
