A very entertaining movie
on 28 November 2013
The main story follows a young, inexperienced lawyer (Matt Damon) as he battles with a big insurance company for not paying healthcare costs to treat a poor family's critically ill son. A deceptively well-known cast brings some strong characters to life in this film, which adds even more enjoyment to a [predictably] very entertaining story from John Gresham. Danny Glover is borderline hilarious as a judge with an anti-corporate attitude & his subtle efforts to help Damon against a mighty team of corporate lawyers (lead by John Voight) provides some nice 'chuckle' moments. The love interest for Matt Damon's character is provided by a very sexy Claire Dannes, playing the role of a victim of violent domestic abuse whom he meets in hospital.
This is one of those 'under the radar' type of films that, once you've watched it, you'll probably wonder why you hadn't heard of it before?! Seriously, give it a try.
