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
this outstanding film portrays the challenges of defending the powerless against the interests of the powerful; its charm & allure pull you into the story; Fred Thompson an excellent addition to the cast, his wit & drawl a perfect fit; Bill Lundy plays his role passionately just as he lives his life; his love of the theater also shines through; remarkable cinematography, especially the closing scene with the stunning maples alongside First Baptist Church; can't wait to see their next production!; kids on-stage in full costume give you a sense of the pursuit of excellence; I also liked the philosophical look on life between Bill & Catharine; life is short & we are to make the most of every moment
