Did You Know?


In the first trial scene when Lightman is on taking his oath, he explains to the judge why it's impossible to tell "the whole truth." It's a mid-range shot, where Lightman's right hand is on the Bible he's being sworn in with. There's then a cut to a long crane shot looking down at Lightman. It's only for a second, before we cut back to the previous shot, hand on Bible. In that interjected crane shot, Lightman is gesticulating with both arms free. See more »


Zoe Landau (Beals, Jennifer): Control yourself or I will have the judge control you!
Dr. Cal Lightman: Oh, what, her? Do me a favor, look at her. She's having a tough enough time controlling herself.

Good, more comedy and an ex wife add to the banter
26 June 2012 | by (Glasgow) – See all my reviews

This is one of those comedic ones

Ex wife is defending a gold digging younger wife accused of murdering her elder husband.

Lightman is on the other side and taking the mickey out of proceedings, but does sometimes go a bit far acting like a cross between Rain man and a drunk.

Having flagrantly disobeyed any laws and flouted any rules he talks to the accused and believes she isn't guilty so switches sides.

Jennifer Beales and Tim Roth work well together with some snappy banter, and she looks pretty damn hot.

Turns out the widow might not be snowy white however.

If this were real I would expect the Judge to go ballistic, however light entertainment allows licence here.

There is a nice twist at the end.
