Storyline

A high-class call girl kills a customer in self-defense. To avoid scandal, her parents try to have her declared mentally incompetent. Not helping matters is that she is very distrustful of everybody, including her court-appointed attorney, and is very disruptive during her court hearings. Written by Tony Berkoff <aberkoff@hq.caci.com>

It's old but it's good. I strongly recommend it!
30 October 1998 | by susi-2See all my reviews

A good- no- great performance by Barbra Streisand. It is a Drama which touches on real life issues and offers a different approach to the mentally insane legal proceedings. If you like to analyze people and ideas...you should watch this movie. It's excellent.
