Pretty good Telemovie
11 December 2000 | by nasfanSee all my reviews

Though this movie may seem to be just another courtroom drama (it is), the acting is pretty good. It finds a down-on-his-luck lawyer (Peter Strauss) defending two different people; one he knows is guilty, one he thinks is guilty. Beverly D'Angelo (who I remember from the 'Vacation' series) is great as the rich and very much guilty southerner who is accused of murdering her husband. The other person the lawyer is defending is innocent and eventually that is proven. Great movie, and it has much drama and a little action to keep you at least somewhat interested through the movie.

8/10
