Seven (stylized as Se7en) is a 1995 American crime film directed by David Fincher and written by Andrew Kevin Walker. It stars Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Gwyneth Paltrow, R. Lee Ermey and Kevin Spacey. It was distributed by New Line Cinema.
David Mills (Pitt) and William Somerset (Freeman) are police detectives working in a crime-filled city, who become deeply involved in a case involving a series of sadistic murders. The murders are all in correspondence to each of the seven deadly sins: Gluttony, Envy, Lust, Pride, Sloth, Greed and Wrath.
Filming took place in California and Pennsylvania. The film was released in the United States on September 22, 1995. Grossing $327 million at the box office internationally, Seven was a commercial success, and received very positive reviews from most critics.
In an unidentified city of near-constant rain and urban decay, the soon-to-be retiring Detective William R. Somerset (Morgan Freeman) is partnered with short-tempered Detective David Mills (Brad Pitt) who recently transferred to the department. Somerset is eventually invited over to meet Mills' wife, Tracy (Gwyneth Paltrow), who is unhappy with the recent move.
