Crime novelist Dan Dark (Robert Downey Jr.) languishes in his hospital bed, mapping out a screenplay in his head about a cynical private investigator who doubles as a singer in a dance band. Heavily medicated, the border between reality and fiction blurs in Dark's mind as the P.I. is slowly drawn into a web of intrigue during a murder investigation in 1950s Los Angeles. Robin Wright Penn, Katie Holmes, Jeremy Northam, Adrien Brody and Mel Gibson co-star. Screenplay by Dennis Potter, adapted from his BBC television series. Directed by Keith Gordon (Waking the Dead).
