An alcoholic heads for las vegas to end it all in one final binge, but complications arise when he unexpectedly bonds with a beautiful hooker.
This profoundly moving love story garnered Nicolas Cage a 1995 Academy Award for Best Actor and Elisabeth Shue a Nomination for Best Actress. Alcoholic Ben Sanderson (Cage) hits rock bottom and sets off for the lights of Las Vegas, determined to drink himself into oblivion. There he meets and falls in love with Sera (Shue), a sexy, seen-it-all hooker. But will their unique and powerful bond be enough to save Ben from himself?

"...A uniquely hypnotic and haunting love story sparked by Nicolas Cage and Elisabeth Shue at their career best...  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"That such a film gets made is a miracle....It is a pure, grand gesture...  Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Editor's Note
With LEAVING LAS VEGAS, director Mike Figgis spun critical gold out of what would appear to be a maudlin and hackneyed premise--a down-and-out drunk meets a hooker with a heart of gold. The reason for the film's success lies partly in its refusal to moralize, but mostly it is the strong performances of Nicholas Cage and Elisabeth Shue that make the story believable and poignant. Ben Sanderson (Cage) is a Hollywood screenwriter who has become an alcoholic. After being fired, he takes his severance pay to Las Vegas, where he plans to drink himself to death. There he meets Sera (Shue), a streetwise prostitute who responds both to Ben's wild antics and to his absolute gentleness. What Sera needs most is to be needed, and Ben needs her a lot. Figgis uses his whole bag of tricks--Sera talks to the camera, the exteriors are shot in grainy 16mm--but finally it is the perfectly-conceived relationship between these two wounded people that drew the rave reviews. The film was based on a novel by John O'Brien.

Plot Summary
An alcoholic movie executive who loses his wife, his family and his job decides to drive to Las Vegas and commit suicide by drinking himself to death in this acclaimed adaptation of the late John O'Brien's 1991 autobiographical novel. In Vegas, he meets a nearly equally pathetic young hooker and the two develop a strange, moving bond while waiting for him to die.
