Very good
13 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

The movie begins with a look at the Chicago skyline, in particular the Wrigley Building, along with some really nice jazz music. Not smooth jazz, which is used a few times in the movie, but real jazz. With a couple of exceptions, such as in a club that plays what I guess would be called blues-rock, the music in this movie is quite good--either jazz, generic smooth jazz background music, or the standard classical-style movie background music.

Then we see a couple in bed together. The woman is beautiful, blonde and apparently tied to the bed. She seems happy, though. Then there is a murder. We see the man who did it.

Laney Hennessy is shown in court, winning yet another case. She used to work in the state's attorney's office prosecuting cases, and Richard O'Brien would like her back. As a defense attorney, Laney makes his job harder.

Later, Laney and her law partner Brooke wear Mariah Carey awards show dresses to a formal event. Brooke's dress at least has sleeves, but fortunately (for some of us; I need to remember mostly women watch these movies), Laney's does not. Later, it's a shame Chicago is so cold this time of year, because Laney and Brooke go running together.

Robert, a successful businessman, asks Lacey to marry him. But then he is arrested, the prime suspect in the murder of Alderman Adam Sutton. Naturally, Laney wants to defend him. She believes he is innocent, but as the movie progresses she finds out details about his business activities that suggest she may be wrong. O'Brien is quite convinced he has the right man and makes Laney's life very difficult. Even Brooke has her doubts, because this affects her too. Will Laney drop the case and let another attorney represent Robert? Will she plead? If not, will she get him off?

It's all quite exciting, and the lead actors do a very good job. So many obstacles are thrown in Laney's path. The press act like vultures. So many people are lying, and there are other murders. But she's quite determined.

This movie is really worth seeing. I wouldn't have minded seeing this character get a series.
