Owning Mahowny - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Dan Mahowny, a banker who has just been promoted, attempts to repay the millions that he has stolen from the bank he works for to fulfill his gambling problem, by gambling with more of the bank's money.
The venerable Philip Seymour Hoffman stars in one of his few leading roles in Owning Mahowny
, where he plays a seriously flawed individual that is going nowhere fast. Much like his character in Love Liza
, where he played a loser addicted to gasoline fumes, Hoffman plays real-life banker Dan Mahowny, who is dangerously addicted to gambling. As in most of his films, he plays the role to perfection. Read our Owning Mahowny movie review »
