A high level suspect in a murder case sleeps with his lawyer.

The Review

Highly competent courtroom drama cum mystery thriller in the old style. The acting is professional but unremarkable; the direction raised an eyebrow or two at the time for its slick sense of style. With hindsight the film paved the way for Fatal Attraction and all those other sex and mayhem thrillers of the next ten years.
