Storyline

Just a normal night at the police station for rookie Christine Paley (Lea Thompson). This is a log of about eight different types of arrests which can happen in a normal month. Lt. Mike Brosloe (Robert Loggia) leads her through a most unusual first shift. If all shifts were like this, even a veteran could only last a short time. Written by Richard Jones <rjo339@swbell.net>

Rookie cop gets a look at several diverse characters who are accused of varying crimes and all have interesting stories.
11 August 1998 | by (California) – See all my reviews

An intresting movie to say the least. It is a montage of different stories; some funny, some intriguing, and some poingent. Definitely worth renting if you're looking for something offbeat or are trying to teach some morality /ethics class. By giving unconventional looks at controversial issues, such as euthanasia, drunk driving, and AIDS discrimination, as well as several others, it shows that nothing in the world is black and white, but often somewhere "in the grey area." The film has a very good cast. Only a couple of major stars, but a lot of recognizable faces, who are enjoyable to watch.

On a scale of 1-20, The Right To Remain Silent racks up a 12.
