“The Counselor” is a crime thriller film released in 2013, directed by Ridley Scott and written by Cormac McCarthy. The movie stars an ensemble cast including Michael Fassbender, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, and Brad Pitt.

The film follows the story of a successful lawyer, known only as “the Counselor” (played by Michael Fassbender), who gets involved in a drug deal with a wealthy businessman named Reiner (played by Javier Bardem) and a middleman named Westray (played by Brad Pitt). The deal quickly goes wrong, and the Counselor finds himself in a dangerous and deadly situation involving drug cartels and the Mexican border.

“The Counselor” received mixed reviews from critics and was a box office disappointment. However, it was praised for its strong performances by the ensemble cast, particularly Cameron Diaz’s villainous turn as Malkina, Reiner’s girlfriend who is involved in the drug trade. The film’s screenplay, written by renowned author Cormac McCarthy, was also noted for its dark and nihilistic tone.
