It also shows how the judicial process works. Often, other legal dramas do not show the reality of the firm`s culture, or they are too informal and ignore how the judicial process works. This seemingly forgotten legal thriller from the eighties is a classic of the genre; Written by Joe Eszterhas (Basic Instinct) as a modern version of Anatomy of a Murder, Glenn Close plays a litigator who refuses to take on the case of a man (a young and inscrutable Jeff Bridges) accused of brutally murdering his wife.

The right line of the film appears when von Bülow tries to explain to Dershowitz (Ron Silver) what really happened: « No, » Dershowitz shrugs.
