Picture is a fine murder mystery, courtroom drama and romantic thriller as attorney Glenn Close defends client Jeff Bridges against murder charges. Also aiding Close is Robert Loggia as a tough private investigator who uncovers some disturbing information about Bridges during the proceedings as Close becomes involved with her client on a personal level. The film shows Close juggling her professional career and personal life as a single mother and Bridges is all boyish charm and good looks and make quite a handsome couple. The movie has a solid supporting cast that includes Peter Coyote, John Dehner and Leigh Taylor-Young and a nice music score by John Barry.
