Tommy Lee Jones and Susan Sarandon star in this glossy adaptation of John Grisham's legal thriller novel of the same name. When a troubled young boy witnesses the suicide of a Mafia lawyer, he hires a tough lawyer (Sarandon) to help protect his interests after the ambitious District Attorney (Lee Jones) tries to use him as a pawn to take down the mob, and launch his own political career in the process. Like a lot of pacy '90s courtroom thrillers, there's over-the-top performances to beat the band, but it's all so entertaining you won't even care.
