The Matador is a dark comedy where we meet hitman Julian Noble (Pierce Brosnan) - in his words "a facilitator of fatalities" - who's very good at what he does. He's in Mexico City doing another job - "a corporate gig" - his specialty. Sadly for Julian though, he has reached a low point in his life - the murder business has all but killed him on the inside. Danny Wright (Greg Kinnear) is also in Mexico City on business, although a decidedly different kind of business. Danny lives in Denver with his wife Bean (Hope Davis), and while they may have troubles financially, there is a youthful lust between them that belies ten years of marriage. Danny finds himself in Mexico City for a business opportunity whose outcome could be the difference between Danny solving all his financial problems or falling even deeper into debt and insecurity. One night, at the hotel bar, these two men meet. Before long, they find themselves having an extremely unique Mexico City experience, one that will change them both forever. Julian the hit man, Danny the ordinary American businessman find that while they have nothing in common, they both need each other in ways they never knew they would.
