James Golden is a small town, middle aged lawyer. He has raised his family and spent his entire life in Harper, Alabama. When a major nursing home malpractice death case comes into his office, he is determined to handle the case all the way to a jury trial, even though it is an area of law in which he has never practiced and against corporate defendants that never lose. An inexperienced but eager young associate, Paul Bruce, joins the fight with him. The intensity of the litigation takes them both to places and challenges they never knew and far from a small town to a larger life.Written by
A Larger Life is one of the best movies I've ever seen The story is a sad one where a defenseless middle aged woman with cerebral palsy was neglected in a nursing home and that acute neglect resulted in her tragic death. Even tough the woman dies there is somewhat a positive end to the story when a small town law firm takes on a big city corporate law firm representing the nursing home and wins. This being a true story of elder neglect in a nursing home setting could place this movie in a position of being required viewing for the elder care industry. Everyone is accountable for their on actions and A Larger Life, proves that.
A Larger Life, was not only about tragedy but it is filled with delightful side stories about living in a small southern town.
Fred Thompson, was the only well known actor in the movie. However the talent in this film was outstanding from the young lawyer roll played by Todd Litzinger, to the writer of the story Bill Lundy, who also played the lead roll as the senior attorney in the case. Other performances worth noting were Catharine Lundy and Laura Wheale.
The music track produced by Fred Story, was perfect for this film and the photography and editing by Caroline Clonts is worth praise.
Mary Walker and Tiff McGruder, both veteran actors from the Rome Little Theatre, Rome, Georgia presented outstanding character rolls. Nice Film!
