Absolute Power 1997

Absolute Power is a 1997 political thriller directed by and starring Clint Eastwood. The screenplay by William Goldman is based on the 1996 novel of the same name written by David Baldacci.
Thief Luther Whitney (Clint Eastwood) breaks into the home of billionaire Walter Sullivan (E.G. Marshall). When Sullivan's younger wife Christy arrives home unexpectedly with the President of the United States, Alan Richmond (Gene Hackman), Luther hides behind a one-way mirror and watches them engage in rough sex. When the President gets too rough, Christy attacks him with a letter opener. The President screams and two Secret Service agents enter and shoot Christy dead. They then clean up the scene of the crime and make it look as if a burglar killed her.
