The Bonfire of the Vanities

The Bonfire of the Vanities

Academy Award winner Tom Hanks stars with Bruce Willis, Melanie Griffith and Morgan Freeman in the film adaptation of Tom Wolfe's best-selling novel that revels in the excesses of the New York of the '80s, The Bonfire of the Vanities. Take one Wall Street tycoon, his Fifth Avenue mistress, a reporter hungry for fame and a wrong turn in The Bronx... Wall Street tycoon Sherman McCoy (Hanks) takes that wrong turn in his Mercedes, gets lost in The Bronx -- and runs down a poor black teenager. Rather than stop in a dangerous neighborhood, he leaves the boy to die. But this act of callow brutality begins a chain of events that will rock the global center of capitalism and shatter the self-indulgent, greedy life that Sherman McCoy had believed was untouchable.
  • Rated R For violence and language.
