Ben Affleck stars in the thriller The Accountant as a forensic accountant who un-cooks the books for illicit clients.
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 Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. The Accountant is directed by Gavin O'Connor (of Miracle, Pride & Glory, Warrior, Jane Got a Gun), from a screenplay written by Bill Dubuque.
