Legal Eagles — A New York DA works and flirts with his legal opponent and strange artist client, who is on trial for a murder she didn`t commit. Duration: 116 minutes Director: Ivan Reitman. Stars: Robert Redford, Debra Winger, Daryl Hannah Watch the movie: Legal Eagles As you can see in the rest of this list, the 90s were a golden age of stylish, starred legal thrillers, and they`re not much better than director Sydney Pollack`s The Firm. John Grisham`s first adaptation has a little bit of everything — tax papers, mocking gangsters and Gary Busey, to begin with — but there`s a reason to see this movie: the strangeness of Tom Cruise. He does a backflip in this film. What else do you need to know? George Clooney made a career as the Grey Knights, and his work as the lead character in this icy New York thriller could be the culmination of his work. Clayton is a super cynical, debt-ridden «repairer,» stuck in damages control amid a massive class action lawsuit. (Think of Olivia Pope from Scandal, but somehow more intense.) He also plays poker, drives exploding cars and makes his best impression of Shiva, the god of death. Tony Gilroy`s legal drama, which has received seven Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, is fun in this way how complex conspiracy threads can be, and it has a handful of memorable exchanges — wait until you see the final confrontation with Tilda Swinton. In the opening scenes of Kramer vs.
Kramer attacks Joanna Kramer (Meryl Streep) on the loving workaholic husband Ted (Dustin Hoffman) and her young son Billy (Justin Henry) and lets the husband and boy learn to take care of each other in their absence; When she reappears in the second half of the film and asks for custody, director Robert Benton moves on to a bitter legal drama. Keanu Reeves, in his arrogant and confused pomp, is a hot and morally ambiguous lawyer confronted with the career opportunity of a lifetime by a charismatic, enigmatic and possibly demonic New York CEO, played by Al Pacino. It`s flashy, cheesy and hammy in the best possible way, as Pacino screams and whispers in turn to seduce Keanu into his circle. As a supernatural horror, it also has its moments, especially in a disturbing sequence with Reeves` wife, played by Charlize Theron. It is long and thick applied, but if you neglect its flaws and indulge in it, it is a Hollywood movie of the most entertaining order. Ray Winstone starred in one of Britain`s most revolutionary films of the 1980s. After attacking a guard, the young delinquent Carlin (Ray Winstone) is transferred to a hard Borstal, where the employees decide to break him with savage and relentless violence. Pug knows there is only one way to survive.
He must fight and become the new «Dad». The movie was released in 1999 and if you like old school movies, The Winslow Boy is one of the best choices. Based on a true story, it focuses on the appointment of law professor Alan Dershowitz in the case of Claus von Bulow, a wealthy Danish convicted of attempted murder of his wife. An interesting film: not least because it shows the involvement of lawyers in real legal disputes – something not often found in the UK. What`s special about this legal show is that it often shows what`s going on in court from the prosecutor`s perspective, with its main characters focusing on proving that the accused is guilty, not innocent. It`s easy to reduce Rob Reiner`s A Few Good Men to Jack Nicholson, who shouts, «You can`t handle the truth!» but it`s just as easy to forget how disturbing and tense a film it is about the cult nepotism of the Marines. There are a lot of moving parts in A Few Good Men, but it revolves around the murder of Marine William Santiago (Michael DeLorenzo) and the two unequal lawyers JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore) and Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise), who are tasked with defending his accused murderers, two comrades. This puts them against Nicholson`s sinister Colonel Jessup.
Although this is Aaron Sorkin`s first film as a writer, it is still one of his best screenplays, intelligent and catchy, that ends up reaching the roots of an American institution. With her life, and especially her last days, which have been the subject of so many cinematic interpretations over the years, the trial of Joan of Arc is perhaps the most dramatized in cinema – although Carl Theodor Dreyer`s The Passion of Joan of Arc has the distinction of being the only interpretation included in the Vatican`s list of approved films. Jagged Edge, a lesser-known work by screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, the brains of basic instinct and Showgirls, offers an alluring mix of violent chaos, reckless romance and legal intrigue. Glenn Close plays Teddy Barnes, a defense lawyer recruited to defend a wealthy newspaper publisher (Jeff Bridges) accused of killing his wife. Soon they ride horses, prepare for the exam, and continue their own secret affair. Set primarily in the wealthy homes and spacious offices of the Reagan-era elite in San Francisco, the film has an opulence that sets it apart from many `90s legal thrillers that often set in the sweltering southern cities of Grisham`s novels. In a stark portrait of the potentially ugly legal consequences of separating a family, the characters of the two ex-partners and the previously seemingly harmless confessions – during a meeting with Joanna before the trial, Ted takes responsibility for Billy`s fall and injuries on the playing field – become fuel for their respective lawyers. Perhaps one of the reasons why court dramas are so reliable is that these films, much like a court case, follow an age-old protocol. Whether they are plaintiffs or defendants, we are on the side of a courageous and aspiring protagonist who needs the help of a studied legal hand to fight against an injustice.
Based on the real-life case of Cheryl Araujo in New Bedford, Massachusetts, The Accused stars Jodie Foster as Sarah Tobias — the victim of a brutal gang rape in a bar where her attackers were encouraged by passers-by — and the ensuing trial in which her drunkenness, «provocative» behavior and clothing were challenged in court. Notably as one of the first mainstream Hollywood films to focus exclusively on rape, Foster`s appearance in The Accused earned the actress her first-ever Oscar for Best Actress. What makes a really gripping legal drama? Corrupt legal systems? Injustices exposed? More twists and turns than you can shake a stick? We`ve rounded up some of the most intriguing legal dramas — some fictional, some based on real-life criminal cases — for moviegoers, from the 1957 classic 12 Angry Men to the British film Let Him Have It. Before 2012`s Magic Mike, his Oscar-winning appearance at the Dallas Buyers Club and 2014`s True Detective brought what became known as «McConaissance» to the next level, the Dazed and Confused star has already found entertaining ways to shake up his relaxed personality. The Lincoln Lawyer, an adaptation of a long series of novels by Bosch author Michael Connelly, is a fairly predictable, sometimes clumsy legal thriller, reinforced by McConaughey`s judicial charisma and the charm of the bailiff. Whether he`s chatting with his driver (Laurence Mason), flirting with his ex-wife (Marisa Tomei), or speaking out at his manipulative client (a pleasantly despicable Ryan Phillippe), McConaughey`s Mick Haller is the kind of slightly slimy hero you can`t help but get excited about. Plus, like the 90s thrillers, from which it is clearly inspired, The Lincoln Lawyer has a stacked supporting cast (Bryan Cranston! William H. Macy! Michael Peña! Josh Lucas! John Leguizamo! Shea Whigham!) This helps to sell all the ridiculous twists and turns of the plot. Unfortunately, there are very few good resources for those interested in lawyers` movies.
That`s why we decided to compile a list of the best lawyers` films in chronological order, dating back to the 1930s. Not only will you come across courtroom classics of all time, but you`ll also discover a huge number of legal movies you`ve never heard of before! As a law student or if you are studying another faculty, college or university, this can be very intense.
