What more could you want in an escapist movie than hoodlums, crooked lawyers, big bucks, and sex?

As part of its “Made in Massachusetts” film series, a yearlong celebration of movies filmed in the commonwealth, the Boston Public Library is showing The Firm tonight.

Based on the best-selling John Grisham novel, The Firm (1993) stars Tom Cruise as Mitch McDeere, a Harvard Law School graduate recently hired by a prestigious Memphis law firm. When McDeere learns of the firm’s ties to organized crime, he’s thrown into a world of corruption and blackmail. Scenes were filmed at Harvard University, at Copley Plaza, and in South Boston.

The free screening begins at 6 p.m. in the BPL’s Rabb Lecture Hall, 700 Boylston St., Copley Square, Boston. To get to there, take the Green Line to Copley .
