Disclosure is a 1994 thriller that focuses on workplace affairs and sexual harassment. The film is based on Michael Crichton's book of the same title. The film takes place in Seattle at a company called DigiCom. The founder of the company, Bob Garvin (Donald Sutherland), is about to retire and head of manufacturing, Tom Sanders (Michael Douglas), expects to take his boss and friend's place. To his surprise, the job is given to an old girlfriend of his, Meredith Johnson (Demi Moore). After introducing her to all her new associates, she calls Tom into her office. After closing the blinds she tries to seduce him. Tom, now a married man, resists her temptations. Angry that he refused her, Meredith vows she will make him pay. The next day, Tom is slapped with sexual harassment charges. Urged to move to the Austin office, Tom refuses and tries to hold on to his innocence. Through an anonymous tip he gains evidence to prove his innocence. But when he finally wins the case he uncovers a deeper conspiracy to get him fired and take the fall for a major company overlook. Now he must fight for his job a second time, with the severity of failure far greater than before.

    The New York Times Janet Maslin

    The storytelling of Disclosure is too forced and polemical to be on a par with better Crichton tales like "Jurassic Park." This time, it's the author who's the dinosaur.
