If you are a Brian Dennehy fan -- watch this mystery
First off, I'm a huge fan of Brian Dennehy. Both ladies gave good performances as well as the supporting cast. And of course, Dennehy was a very interesting attorney. We are drawn into his personal life as a multi-faceted man. He is so adept at showing a honest range of emotions, personality, and character. This is a good twisty mystery. Yes, it is a longer film, but includes plenty of drama both in and our of the court room.
If you are viewing as a TV movie, I'd recommend recording if you have a recorder device to speed up your viewing pleasure (commercials). Interesting plot developments and some good ethical questions were presented. Even if you guess the guilty, you will enjoy this mystery.
