Gene Hackman plays a Civil Liberties lawyer who only fights for the underdogs in order to be on the front cover of 'Time' Magazine. His daughter (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) is an up and coming lawyer who opposes her father's views. Inevitably they face each other in court - a case which Hackman has virtually no chance of winning.

War is declared at home and in court, with his wife left to pay the ultimate price. Hackman is marvelous in this, and really plays from the heart. One or two moments in this might put a tear or two in your eyes. At one point when a key witness pokes fun in court at the alleged victims, Hackman retorts 'it's all right for you to joke, you still have both your arms and legs'.
His daughter, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, hates her father for his past behaviour towards her mother and has no intention of losing the case, although events leave her with a moral dilemma. One can not help taking sides with the underdog, but how will this resolve itself ?? The film has a very fine ending, which is somewhat unexpected. Enjoy.
So, when a lighting circuit component fails in a popular car model and causes vehicle fires, naturally a case is lodged against the manufacturers. Taking the case is a crusty, liberal lawyer, Jed, (Gene Hackman). But, to his shock and fortunately for us, in defence is Jed's estranged daughter Maggie (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), who's ambitious and ruthless. This creates a tension, in the courtroom and privately as reasons and causes for their differences are aired.
Unlike some more well known courtroom dramas, there's little shouting or violence. No one gets murdered. The case is reasonably involving and both leads are good. The outcome wasn't as full-blooded as I'd have liked and so I give three and bit stars. Quietly recommended, though, especially for lovers of the genre.
