Review

Newman is in Oscar winning form as a drinking, failing lawyer who insists on taking a no-hope malpractice case to trial rather than accepting a handsome out of court settlement. Castigated by those around him he seems on the road to failure, but, against all good sense, he keeps on trying and goes for broke. Convincing rather than realistic, emotive rather than analytical, this is a devastating judgement on the US judical system.
