Certification15 Our Rating

An unusually low-key legal thriller, based on a real-life case of toxic dumping, which avoids the usual cliched courtroom confrontation. John Travolta is excellent as the ambulance-chasing attorney who initially turns down the case of eight kids stricken with leukaemia by corporate contamination, but who ultimately can't resist taking on the big boys. Robert Duvall adds an interesting diversion as Travolta's court adversary who's neither corrupt nor an ogre, but simply ultra-efficient. find out more...

A film version of the notorious events surrounding the demonization and media witchhunt of the religiously nutty mother of a baby who was gobbled by dingoes near Ayers Rock..... the famous 'dingo baby case'. Just shows that the Aussie press, owned by you know who, is as criminally irresponsible, ie full of lies, as the Pommie press, owned by you know who. find out more...

Powerhouse courtroom drama with Cruise as the slick young navy lawyer whose bravado founders on the case of a young soldier who dies at the hands of fellow Marines. Nicholson excels as the steely colonel, decorous to the last, and director Reiner keeps the mood tense and razor-edged. Superb! find out more...

Brilliant adaptation of the John Grisham novel. When two rednecks rape a 10-year-old old black girl, but look set to walk free, her distraught father shoots them dead. But this is the Deep South, and retribution will not be tolerated from a "negro". Powerful, thought-provoking courtroom thriller.

A witty and light classic studio comedy. Hepburn and Tracy are lawyers fighting opposite sides of a murder case. The case, about a woman attempting to kill her two-timing husband, provides much fodder for the ensuing 'battle of the sexes'. The delightfully funny script is suberbly acted. find out more...
AMISTAD (1998)

Certification15 Our Rating

A group of abducted Africans break free from their shackles aboard a Spanish slave ship, the Amistad, so setting the scene for a lengthy courtroom drama played out against a backdrop of 19th Century slavery. Matthew McConaughy is the noble young lawyer fighting for the slaves' freedom, while Anthony Hopkins is mesmerising as decrepit former President John Quincy Adams. Superb sets and an authentic atmosphere, and it's pretty gruesome at times too. Typically Spielberg-esque epic. find out more...

Certification15 Our Rating

Controversial (on release) for using words such as 'semen' and 'panties' in order to aid its realism, and perhaps for it's very ambivalent position on the role of the law in achieving justice. Stewart plays a lawyer hired to defend Gazzara from the charge of murdering the man who allegedly raped his wife. Stylish, cool and brilliant! find out more...

Al Pacino finally gets to play the right side of the law…or so it seems. Disillusioned lawyer Arthur is hired to defend a judge whom he knows is guilty of the heinous crimes he is being tried for. When a prominent judge on the circuit tries to convince Arthur to play the corrupt game of high-profile law, the trial becomes about the fate of Arthur's soul as much as about his client's future as a free man. A must-see for Pacino fans (he was nominated for an Academy Award for this role) and cour find out more...
