High powered lawyer Claire Kubik finds her world turned upside down when her husband, who she thought was Tom Kubik, is arrested and is revealed to be Ron Chapman. Chapman is on trial for a murder of Latin American villagers while he was in the Marines. Claire soon learns that to navigate the military justice system, she'll need help from the somewhat unconventional Charlie Grimes; meanwhile, Claire's sister, Jackie, is falling in love with wet-behind-the-ears Lieutenant Embry assigned as the official defense lawyer. And most of the eyewitnesses have rather too conveniently died. Written by

This is the new thriller directed by Carl Franklin (who showed promise in "Devil in a Blue Dress"). This film features Ashley Judd as an ambitious female attorney who suddenly finds out that her husband (a zonned out looking Jim Caviezel) has a secret past and is suddenly on trial in military court for murder. She turns to disgraced former JAG lawyer Morgan Freeman for help. While often employing typical court room thriller twists and turns this film keeps you involved and interested until it throws out all reason and common sense for a series of bizare and just plain wrongheaded twists at the end of the film that really ruins all the good will the film had built up until that point. It's a shame too because the talent involved is top flight and deserved a better vehicle. GRADE: C-
