5.0 out of 5 stars A Rather Fine Film, 27 July 2003
This review is from: The Rainmaker [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
I have just finished watching this film for the second time. It is a classic. Matt Damon plays the role of Rudy Baylor well, with that inexperience of a new lawyer and his nerves. Danny Devito backs him up brilliantly.
The plot, involves a newly qualified lawyer going up against a big insurance company, over their failure to pay out on a policy. There is a subplot - sort of a love interest for Rudy. She is married to a wifebeater, who teases Rudy at first.
Anyway, when the first judge dies(dean stockwell) a new judge takes over the case played by Danny Glover. It has to be one of his best performances. He sort of sides with Rudy but plays fair.
Then Rudy has to learn to stand on his feet, and beat his nerves. As the film prgresses he begins to gain his confidence.
So as not to give the ending away. all i say is this film was put together very well and it may have you in tears by the end of it.
