TCP: Order in the Court

If there's anything, whenever I hear the words courtroom drama, my thoughts automatically shift to John Grisham. I went on a reading phase where anything John Grisham wrote, I devoured with much gusto.

I went on a research spree for this one again. But I only have 1 movie in mind for this category. It's the photo you see above. I love the actors. I love the execution even if it wasn't a direct lift from the book. It basically had the same essence.

In the book, the plot was a case against a tobacco company. But before I go on and on about the book. Let's concentrate on the movie.

Here's the trailer for the movie:

I think the trailer says it all. I just love the combination of John Cusack and Rachel Weisz.
I love how they made the jury eat out. How they said they can deliver the verdict each team needed...when in reality they only wanted 1 ending.
It's a great film, complete with drama and the action.
How the jurors are just people, with flaws, with secrets, sometimes manipulated, and unpredictable.
