Movie Review: “Deception”
Michelle Williams and Ewan McGregor in “Deception.”
Even the title seems like something Showtime plays long after the children go to bed: “Deception.” Despite the presence of two fine actors, Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor, it is that kind of film — sex, shadows and skullduggery. It is just a better version of a Zalman King flick: think “Red Shoe Diaries” with talent on display instead of just skin.
McGregor plays Jonathan McQuarry, an easy mark — his last name gives it away.
McQuarry is a lonely, buttoned-down accountant tasked with investigating corporate bookkeeping. He is checking the ledgers at a high-powered law firm when Wyatt Boles (Jackman) spies him. Wyatt befriends the meek number cruncher, takes him to elite bars and then abruptly leaves for London — but not before switching cell phones with him.
Jonathan starts getting cryptic calls that always start with, “Are you free tonight?” It turns out that Wyatt is a member of an exclusive sex club.
