McConaughey doing what he does best in his latest role as a fast-talking, LA defense lawyer who conducts his sole business out of the back of a chauffeured Lincoln. The film twists a clever story carried by a phenomenal cast in which said lawyer’s ethics are compromised as he suddenly acquires a high-profile case. All without the pompous legal balderdash so often associated with the courtroom drama.
THE LINCOLN LAWYER l Directed by Brad Furman (USA 2011) with Matthew McConaughey, Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillippe, William H. Macy. Opens June 23
