[while getting dressed as Naomi helps him]
On my first day of law school, my professor says two things. First was: from this day forward, when your mother tells you she loves you, get a second opinion.

Three outstanding performances/characters (or "four?")
Edward Norton's debut was outstanding in this film, and his work since has confirmed his substantial talent.
Richard Gere was equally-proficient in his role as the big-shot defense attorney defending Norton's seemingly hapless "Aaron."
And Laura Linney - although in a role with less screen-time, was also equal in her performance as the prosecutor, and Gere's courtroom opposition and former lover.
The supporting roles were well-cast and played, and perhaps the only criticism to be given would be some brief sub-plot elements which weren't necessary to the main story, but really didn't detract from it significantly.
This film provides an excellent combination of courtroom- and psycho-drama - each excellent in its own right, and superb together in this presentation's plot.
Gripping, thoroughly-enjoyable entertainment.
