After alcoholic Ben Sanderson learns that he has lost his job in Los Angeles as a screenwriter, he heads to Las Vegas to drink himself to death.  When Ben crosses paths with a beautiful call girl who sympathizes for him because of her addictions, Ben wonders whether or not he's met someone who can save his life; but can she before it's too late?  Nicholas Cage and Elisabeth Shue give terrific performances; this picture earned Cage an Academy Award for Best Actor in 1995.
