There are no rules in The Game. And that will make life very difficult for Nicholas Van Orton (Michael Douglas), a successful businessman who is always in control. Van Orton lives a well-ordered life-until an unexpected birthday gift from his brother (Sean Penn) destroys it all. Van Orton has been enrolled in a game-"a profound life experience"-that begins quietly enough but soon erupts in a rush of devastating events. Like it or not, he must either win or lose control of everything in his life.
