Plot Sypnosis:

Francis Ford Coppola's 1974 seminal neo-noir thriller THE CONVERSATION symbolizes the uneasy line between technology and privacy – a topic more relevant than ever today. Nominated for 3 Academy Awards® and winner of the prestigious 1974 Cannes Film Festival Palme D'or THE CONVERSATION is a tense, paranoid thriller, regarded as one of Coppola's greatest films.

Harry Caul (Gene Hackman) is an expert surveillance expert in San Francisco. His routine wiretapping job turns into a nightmare when he hears something disturbing in his recording of a couple; he may have captured something a lot more important than adulterous goings-on. His investigation of the tape and how it might be used sends Harry spiralling into a web of secrecy, murder and paranoia. THE CONVERSATION is a harrowing psychological thriller that co-stars Cindy Williams, Frederic Forrest and Harrison Ford.
