Synopsis

Based on a true story concerning a successful banker who risks his fortune and the family’s good name to defend his son accused of theft. After being dismissed from a prestigious prep school, a disgrace that could cause early-1900s British society to shun this family, the boy proclaims his innocence despite the evidence. Their subsequent stand takes them to court.

Dove Review

Renowned playwright/director David Mamet (recognized for his salty dialogue in past productions) has sensitively adapted Terence Rattigan’s play about a barrister defending a youth accused of school theft. This genteel look at a father’s determination to see justice done gives film-goers a superb screenplay by Mr. Mamet, proving that a story can be told without bombarding the viewer with profane and offensive material. Erudite dialogue, nicely interwoven subplots and charming , along with a reverence for the Creator, make this a pleasurable movie-going experience.
