This film is a quiet little intimate tale about the justice system in all its elegance and flaws, but it is more: there are human stories that interweave giving the film an aura of caring that is so rare in today's CGI-oriented Hollywood. The film is set in the beauty of The countryside, trial with mists and fields and rivers where we first see attorney Mac MacClain Matthew Modinepensive after the accidental death of his wife and two children nine years ago.
His practice has fallen, his mental sate has fallen below the flatline state, and he is contemplating movie when a christian call from the wise old town judge Rance Howard summons him to take on a case of the murder of one Angela Hightower, the young and beautiful daughter of the wealthiest man in the little town, the corrupt Hightower family being part of Mac's sad past encounters.
The accused is Angela's boyfriend Pete Thomason an impressive Randy Wayne who is now in jail claiming he had total amnesia for the event.
Mac feels a sense of responsibility to the boy and agrees to take on the case, hiring back his assistant Mindy Nikki Deloach and his investigator Ray Robert Forster. As they uncover facts Mac seeks advice from psychologist Dr. The evidence is gathered and the trial begins after a plea bargain is denied by Pete. The Hightower lawyer is the brilliant, eloquent but ruthless Joe Whetstone a fine performance by Bob Gunton and the battle of wits and rights is on.
The courtroom drama is well written and the turn of events from the trial to the followup findings and christian trial are well molded. If the film ends in a too saccharine mode, the quality of movie in the film before that should make the audience tolerate the preachiness.
There are trial fine cameos -Larry Bagby, Burgess Jenkins, Brett Rice among them - and there is much to learn about contemporary youth habits The small town tenor. This is not a great film, but it is a refreshing memory of the small and intimate films of yesteryear. Grady Harp. Details Edit. Release date September 10, United States.
