Defense attorney Richard Ramsay takes on a personal case when he swears to his widowed friend, Loretta Lassiter that he will keep her son Mike out of prison. Charged with murdering his father, Mike initially confesses to the crime. But as the trial proceeds, chilling evidence about the kind of man that Boone Lassiter really was comes to light. While Ramsay uses the evidence to get his client acquitted, his new colleague Janelle tries to dig deeper.

Very flat in acting. Plot was ok. Nothing to be remembered by...

A good courtroom drama with fewer procedural gaffs than most. The ever-wooden Keanu R. is suited for the role of a rather wooden lawyer, and Renée Z. makes quite a transformation as a washed-out femme d'un certain age. All of this takes place in a Louisiana that is pretty bereft of Loozeeana accents. Okay as an evening's entertainment.

How much do you know about Muhammad Ali?
-I know he didn't go to law school.
Better than that. In 1974, he took on George foreman, who was seven years younger, and had knocked out every man he'd fought. Foreman was at his peak. And Ali, round after round, just stood there getting pounded. He wouldn't or couldn't fight back. No one knew which.
-You mean the rope-a-dope?
Yeah. And finally, in the eighth round, foreman got tired, tired of punching, exhausted himself.
Suddenly, Ali came to life. In one round, foreman was on the canvas like an old man.
===
Why won't he talk to you?
-That's the problem with people who refuse to speak. They never say why.

Listen. It's your call, but Stanford is one of the top schools in the country and you got in early. I mean, look, I'm happy to go to Reed, check it out, but... It's weird. Maybe we should just declare
victory and head home early, huh? Surprise your mom? (A Surprise of all surprises for them.)
===
I didn't do that to save you!
===
The jury believed xxyyzz, ignored the facts and the law, did what they knew was right.
===
At some point, every defense lawyer has to choose between his own need to know the truth and the best interests of his client.
===
A wife doesn't have to testify against her husband, but a mother does against her child? Like the bond is somehow less or something? (It is True!)
