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.
Very good story line
