Storyline

Defense attorney Richard Ramsay takes on a personal case when he swears to his widowed friend, Loretta Lassiter, that he will keep her son Mike out of prison. Charged with murdering his father, Mike initially confesses to the crime. But as the trial proceeds, chilling evidence about the kind of man that Boone Lassiter really was comes to light. While Ramsay uses the evidence to get his client acquitted, his new colleague Janelle tries to dig deeper - and begins to realize that the whole truth is something she alone can uncover.

its OK, and for once I agree with the IMDb rating to this point
3 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Its an okay and well acted courtroom Drama. It seemed to try to reach for the same integrity that "Presumed Innocent" had more than 25 years ago, but didn't even come close. The surprise twist at the end, was too pat, too staged, and was a serious reach in credulity. The attempt to make the audience wonder on what Reeves character would do at the end, didn't cut it either. Its worth the watch, but not worth more than a 6 of 10, as far as drama goes. Keanu Reeves is good as always, but he is still a pretty wooden actor. And sometimes his So Cal accent, still comes through. Renée Zellweger was astonishing. I didn't even recognize her. She might get an Oscar nod here.Gugu Mbatha-Raw is great as always. I've seen her in three films, and her transformative powers are astonishing. An Oscar nod is definitely in her future.
