Gwen Saticoy: [after the first day of her trial] ... So are you going to get a book deal when this is all over?
Danielle Kline: That depends on what happens during the trial. But they might offer me one. Why? Would you be upset if I took it?
Gwen Saticoy: Would you turn it down if I said yes?
[Kline shakes her head no]
Gwen Saticoy: Well, at least you're honest.
Danielle Kline: Gwen, I've got a successful practice. I don't need a book deal. And I don't need this case, either.

I have always thoroughly enjoyed films, like "Star Chamber" or the Charles Bronson vigilante movies where people take the law into their own hands to redress the wrong done by a decaying and unfair justice system. In this particular film Annette O'Toole gives an extremely moving, emotional and lifelike performance of a young lady aggrieved by the brutal murder of her brother who cannot bear to see his murderer get off scot free due to the garbage and slander spilled before the court by the pompous and greedy Merle Hammond. Technically one may argue that she should not have taken Hammond prisoner but rather the judge himself who let the murderer off but this film implies that Hammond's defense was so powerful and persuasive that the judge had no other alternative ! That is a matter for debate but the fact is that Hammond was the chosen victim and it there is a real feel good factor in seeing him humiliated ! The film contains good storyline and also a memorable music score. The ending is extremely touching and laid back .... no gloating over victory ... just the feeling of "having done the necessary to be able to continue with her life". A very laudable piece of cinema which confirms Annette O'Toole as one of my favourite actresses, very human, very real and also very fragile at the same time !
