Storyline

In Silent Witness, Dermot Mulroney (Zodiak, Copycat) plays prominent defense attorney Tony Lord, who returns to his hometown to defend an old friend, played by Michael Cudlitz (TNT's Southland). The friend is a teacher accused of murdering one of his students, and the case re-opens the heartache from Tony's own high school days, when he was a student falsely accused of murdering his first love. Silent Witness also stars Anne Heche (Hung, Men in Trees) as Sue Robb, the wife of the accused teacher, and Judd Hirsch (Damages, Taxi) as Saul Ruben, Tony Lord's close friend and associate.

EXCELLENT!!! Very close to the book!
3 November 2018 | by bronzesrvSee all my reviews

I absolutely love this movie. It was so much like the book! That very seldom happens with movies, of course certain things must be shortened and edited to fit a two hour time frame. I read this book about 20 years ago! I never even knew there was a movie on it until now. It was very good! The Twist and the suspense was absolutely perfect, all the veteran actors in here were amazing! This movie is a must-see. And of course it is a movie you will watch more than once.
