John Travolta (Face/Off, Phenomenon) gives another brilliant performance in a suspenseful true story that’s been praised as the greatest legal thriller of all time! Jan Schlichtmann (Travolta) is a cynical, high-priced personal injury attorney who only takes big-money cases he can safely settle out of court. Though his latest case at first appears straightforward, Schlichtmann soon becomes entangled in an epic legal battle...one where he’s willing to put his career, reputation and all that he owns on the line for the rights of his clients! Also featuring Robert Duvall (The Apostle, Phenomenon), William H. Macy (Fargo, Mr. Holland’s Opus) and John Lithgow (The Pelican Brief, TV’s 3rd Rock From The Sun) – this gripping, widely acclaimed hit delivers edge-of-your-seat entertainment!
