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
Excellent movie; great inside look into law practice; encapsulates small town nuances
A solemn plot line that suspensively unravels an unscrupulous web of lies, and cover-ups in a major nursing home malpractice death case is woven masterfully into the ordinary small-town life of a Southern lawyer.
"A Larger Life" offers a charming, engaging and oftentimes humorous glimpse into the life of Alabama lawyer James Golden (Bill Lundy). However, the film's tragic (and sadly true) plot grounds the movie into a poignant and weighty film that sticks with you long after you leave the theatre.
A must-see movie for anyone that believes that good guys can finish first, justice can prevail and that death is not the final verdict.
