Our Take

6.9
The Staff

Matthew McConaughey is pretty much the whole movie here. He plays a lawyer whose office is his Lincoln car and who usually defends cases of morally bankrupt clients.

When he is lured into defending a wealthy guy for a sexual assault charge, he finds out that the guy might be involved in a series of similar crimes. The story is often predictable, but there are original arcs about the limits of attorney-client privilege.

It’s such a guilty pleasure to watch McConaughey act in his usual style, one that never gets old. The courtroom scenes are fantastic as well.
