HOW CAN YOU BELIEVE IN A SYSTEM WHERE THE STRONG ALWAYS PREY ON THE WEAK?
5 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

"How can you believe in a system where the strong always prey on the weak?" -- this excellent film focuses on that question as it follows the spiritual fall of a previously honest lawyer who succumbs to temptation to pass off a brilliant novel as his own. Cuba Gooding is wonderful as the lawyer and the plot is brilliant. Moral questions abound in this film, and the suspense keeps you on the edge of your seat.
