Edison is an American crime thriller movie that was released on July 18, 2005. It is directed by David J. Burke and stars an ensemble cast that includes Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey, Justin Timberlake, LL Cool J, and Dylan McDermott. The story revolves around a young journalist named Josh Pollack (played by Justin Timberlake) who discovers evidence of corruption and cover-ups within one of the country's most influential companies known as the Edison Corporation. He tries to get his story published but is met with strong opposition from his editor who is hesitant to run the story out of fear of legal repercussions. Pollack is determined to uncover the truth and enlists the help of a private investigator named Moses Ashford (played by Morgan Freeman).

The investigation leads them to a web of conspiracies, criminal activities, and dangerous dealings that involve some of the most powerful figures in the city. They soon realize that they are in over their heads and have become entangled in a game of cat and mouse with some of the most dangerous people in the city.

Kevin Spacey plays Humphrey, the corrupt CEO of Edison Corporation, who will stop at nothing to protect his interests and prevent Pollack and Ashford from uncovering the truth. He uses his wealth, power, and influence to manipulate the media and the justice system to his advantage. LL Cool J plays a detective who is caught in the middle of the investigation while Dylan McDermott plays a ruthless hitman hired to eliminate anyone who gets in Humphrey's way.

As the investigation intensifies, Pollack and Ashford find themselves in increasingly dangerous situations that threaten their lives and the lives of those close to them. They must rely on their wits, instincts, and courage to outsmart their enemies and bring the truth to light.

The movie explores themes of corruption, power, and the role of the media in exposing the truth. It also touches on the ethical dilemmas faced by journalists when trying to report on sensitive issues that may harm the public interest. The performances by the cast are strong, particularly Freeman and Spacey who bring depth and nuance to their respective roles.

Overall, Edison is an engaging crime thriller that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats with its twists and turns. It is a well-acted and well-directed movie that provides a glimpse into the darker side of corporate America and the lengths that people will go to protect their interests.
