In the classic 1997 film Grosse Pointe Blank, John Cusack portrays a hitman named Martin Blank who is tormented by existential anxieties after years of working in the ruthless profession. The movie begins with Martin receiving a job to assassinate a former classmate named Debi Newberry (Minnie Driver) at her high school reunion in Grosse Pointe, Michigan.

As Martin heads back to his hometown, he grapples with the realization that he has no meaningful connections in his life and is ultimately alone. He reconnects with Debi, who is now a successful radio DJ, and they begin to rekindle their romance despite Martin's dangerous line of work. Meanwhile, Martin is being monitored by a rival hitman, Grocer (played by Dan Aykroyd), who wants to put Martin out of commission permanently.

The film's witty dialogue and dark humor contribute to its charm, as Martin and Debi navigate their tumultuous past while Martin tries to decide whether or not to complete his latest job.
