Originally made in 1986 and released on VHS this little bit of confused fluff is now available on DVD. Reason for resurrecting it? Probably to remind us how fine an actress (even given this script....) Debra Winger was in those days. Also it provides a chance to see a younger Robert Redford in a whimsical role. Other than that, this film is one of those space fillers that has some occasional good lines and interesting situations for a story that began as an investigation of the rather grim haggling over the estate of brilliant painter Mark Rothko. A bit of interesting fact: Debra Winger actually left the powerful Creative Artists Agency over this film. She felt that since all the major cast and crew members were with CAA at the time, they did not hire the best people, they hired only clients who could get the film made!
District Attorney Tom Logan (Robert Redford) is set for higher office, at least until he becomes involved with defense lawyer Laura Kelly (Debra Winger) and her unpredictable client, performance artist Chelsea Deardon (Daryl Hannah). It seems the least of Chelsea's crimes is the theft of a very valuable painting, but as the women persuade Logan to investigate further and to cut some official corners, a much more sinister scenario starts to emerge. The owner of the gallery Victor Taft (Terrance Stamp) manipulates and is manipulated and eventually murdered but not until the team of Logan and Kelly have at it in a romp that is supposed to be tense but results in being rather silly. And who is to blame for the murder? Why, Chelsea Deardon, of course, and it is up to our legal eagles to get her acquitted.
Ivan Retiman (Ghostbusters) directs and also wrote (with Jim Cash and Jack Epps, Jr.) and the supporting cast includes such actors as Brian Dennehy, John McMartin, Roscoe Lee Browne, and Christine Baranski among a host of others. It is not a bad film, just a misguided one, but if a serving of whipped cream is your choice of the evening ....
