Storyline

Henri Miller is a successful restaurateur and family man living the American dream until he collapses from what appears to be a cerebral hemorrhage. Raced to the hospital Henri's wife Margaret learns that he has been seeing a neurologist in an attempt to diagnose unexplained headaches since his childhood. With one test remaining, Dr. Pullman convinces Henri to have the new FVMRI procedure-an MRI-like machine that reads long-term memory in video form. When the test reveals that Henri shot and killed two people on his farm, the first Superior Court trial with evidence introduced by the defendant's own memory is soon underway. Although Henri has no recollection of this memory, upon broadcast in court Henri's father Joseph immediately falls ill having witnessed that exact memory. With time running out and Henri's guilt of second degree murder all but assured, Margaret's desperate attempt to clear her husband soon reveals that Henri's mind will answer to all crimes-those of the past, ...

Fascinating view into what may very well be our future
22 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is not often that a film inspires me to do some study but with this film, Justice is Mind, I did just that. A fascinating look into what may very well become part of our future.

A gripping story that revolves around a trial of the century. One in which what is viewed in ones mind becomes hard evidence against him. Can he be convicted because his brain recalls an event that he has no recollection of committing? What follows is a trial full of detail and intrigue. Admittedly, I don't like films based on trials yet this one was different. This filmmaker has a great story to tell and he does tell it in precise detail. Having done his homework, Mark Lund, the writer and director does a wonderful job of bringing out a compelling story full of intelligence and real life science. I commend him for his writing and story telling.

Vernon Aldershoff, the films lead character, does a perfectly absorbing job of portraying Henri Miller the subject of the films trial. With near childlike innocence his grasp of Henri's struggle leaves the viewer loving and caring for him Guilty or not.

Kim Gordon and Mary Wexler hold the arms of justice as prosecutor and judge. Both delivering such believable and watchable portrayals we are able to become so deeply invested in what evidence is discussed and presented. These ladies really make the trial feel real, feel important and feel like nothing less than a trial of the century.

These New England actors and filmmakers should really be commended for what they have brought to the screen. It will be a long while before I ever forget the scenes so magically captured by these wonderful people. If you are looking for a film that is different on so many levels then look no further. Justice is Mind is not only a good film, it is a peek into our own judicial future.
