In a controversial case, a young girl and a university student are talking about judicial law relating to the assassination of two Supreme Court justices in mysterious circumstances, which will make it a target for the killers. When the girl charges, she knows how accurate her charges are when her lover is killed. The girl escapes to New Orleans, where she might meet a journalist who decided to help her solve a big and dangerous plot involving large government and judicial figures in the state. This may reveal many secrets and issues.

An old hand at this sort of thing, Pakula goes through the motions, but not much more.

As the film piles on shovelfuls of further exposition, Mr. Washington and Ms. Roberts are left to look terrific and recite perfunctory lines.

It's too bad that Pakula allows this 1993 movie to dawdle after its climax, but prior to that he's adept at suggesting unseen menace and keeping things in motion.

If I would still call it one of Pakula's very best films since the end of the 1970s, that says far more about the decline of his career than anything else.

Pakula has improved on Grisham's book by excising much of the detritus, crafting a taut, intelligent thriller that succeeds on almost every level.
