One of the first serious films for the Cruiser, and one that allowed him to flex is acting muscles to a comfortable degree.

From the bestselling John Grisham novel comes the story of the idealistic young lawyer who lands a gig at a very powerful and prestigious law firm that he soon discovers is into some shady dealings.

I forget the shady dealings they're into, but the solid performances by a cast of both able veterans and young pros almost overshadows it.

Taut and satisfying.
