A teenage girl - Newt, is stranded out in the ocean in a Jon Boat, an ocean that is infested by sharks. Unknown to Newt there is something far more dangerous than sharks, something down deep below on the ocean bed that is following her.
This is a great movie about a dedicated lawyer in the city who defends the indefensible. I agree with the previous entry, that this movie shows or captures some of the essence of reality of the law system. I remembered how it scared me to see this system in the light that it was portrayed in "The Law." Judd Hirsch portrayed his public defender role with such intelligence. Bonnie's role was well done also. These roles were gritty, but there was always a sense of humanity in the character. I didn't know that the movie was a pilot for a TV series. I would enjoy seeing this series on some of the cable networks that show old series. I miss this kind of production. I miss the writing and intelligence infuse into the story. I wish present day TV series could learn from some of the past shows. I recommend seeing this movie if possible.
