Middling but diverting courtroom drama has a superior Melanie Griffith as a lawyer caught in a deadly game when the murder suspect she is defending is seemingly far from innocent. Her intuition tells her that there’s more than his obvious guilt involved, so despite the warnings of her ex-husband (Tom Berenger) who is also the prosecutor in the case, she investigates a presidential candidate () at the possible cost of her own reputation. A subplot involving a psycho former client played by is awkward and out of place, but other than that Griffith’s excellent acting makes this one film her fans should see.
