A hit-and-run accident in the Bronx prompts a citywide conflict, fueled by ambitious politicians, greedy lawyers and jaded ministers with a wealthy businessman in the center of the controversy. Based on the best-selling novel by Tom Wolfe. Academy Award winner Tom Hanks stars with Bruce Willis, Melanie Griffith and Morgan Freeman in the film adaptation of Wolfe's best-selling novel that revels in the excesses of New York in the 1980s, The Bonfire of the Vanities. Take one Wall Street tycoon, his Fifth Avenue mistress, a reporter hungry for fame and a wrong turn in The Bronx.... and watch the fireworks. Wall Street tycoon Sherman McCoy (Hanks) takes that wrong turn in his Mercedes with his mistress, gets lost in The Bronx--and an accident leaves an African-American teenager dead. This random act begins a chain of events that will rock the global center of Capitalism and shatter the self-indulgent, greedy life that Sherman McCoy had believed was untouchable.
