PG Certificate


Our Score
A Chicago lawyer's romantic nature threatens to be her undoing in this increasingly obvious yet watchable crime drama. Victoria Pratt is solidly engaging as the loved-up legal hotshot who puts her entire life on the line when she decides to professionally defend fiancé Vincent Spano after he's accused of murder. But while she determinedly butts heads with her prosecutor mentor (an effective William B Davis) in enjoyably rat-a-tat verbal exchanges that give the procedural scenes energy, the twisting script quickly challenges her convictions by casting doubt on both Spano's innocence and honesty. Soon lies, corruption and conspiracy abound; though the sense of intrigue they generate is cut short thanks to visual signposting and the unconvincing ease in which Pratt's character uncovers the truth.


A successful lawyer's fiance is accused of murdering a high-profile politician. Despite the protestations of her friends and colleagues, she decides to defend him in court, but while gathering evidence for the trial, begins to wonder whether she knows the object of her affections as well as she thinks. Crime drama, starring Victoria Pratt and Vincent Spano.
