The story centers on a successful lawyer (Robert Downey Jr.) who returns to his hometown and learns that his father (Robert Duvall), the town's judge, is accused of murdering his mother. The attorney sets out to find the truth, while reconnecting with his estranged dad, who suffers from Alzheimer's Disease.
David Dobkin is directing from a screenplay by Bill Dubuque, who rewrote the original draft by Nick Schenk (Gran Torino). The studio is also closing in on casting the lawyer's ex-girlfriend, with Vera Farmiga and Elizabeth Banks considered the top choices for the part.
