The Lincoln Lawyer
If you missed this movie from a couple of years ago, check it out. Matthew McConaughey is terrific as a slick and tricky defense attorney who works out of his chauffeured Town Car on the streets of L.A. However, he may have met his Teflon-like match in a privileged playboy client on trial for rape and murder. The impressive cast includes Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillipe as the accused, John Leguizamo, Josh Lucas, Bryan Cranston, Frances Fisher, and William H. Macy. The film is based on the Michael Connelly book of the same title. -- recommended by Becky W.C. - Walt Branch Library [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try A Time To Kill; And Justice for All; web article: The 25 Greatest Legal Movies.]
