It’s not easy to judge or to make the right choice as one. And the past always will get to you, no matter what you do and what you try to forget about it. This family drama is a perfect example of that. Basing everything on two major actors, this is more than solid (gold). The story works and you’re invested from the get go. Even if Robert Downeys character might not seem the friendliest or maybe because of that. Because he seems to be able to get away with things.
But we do get to see behind that curtain/wall, that his character has made up and his own denial. There is an almost weird love triangle, which might throw some people off, but it’s just to make our main character more believable, to show what he became over the years. Every decision will result in some consequences, question is who is the one taking them…. A great drama and movie, highly recommended
Great courtroom scene
Duvall’s testimony was as good a courtroom scene as has ever been filmed, and technically accurate, too. (I say this from 32 years as a trial lawyer.) Beautifully directed. I am biased in favor of Duvall, but I think both he and Downey are in the running for an Oscar for this must-not-miss movie. The movie itself might even be nominated for the Best Movie Oscar. For those who think this was a tearjerker, reflect on how profoundly life-changing it is to grow into adulthood without your father’s approval — or worse, with his active disapproval. The complexities of the sibling relationships is honest and painful and, in the case of the youngest brother, tender. The cherry on top is Downey’s parting observation in the men’s room to the federal prosecutor about the “miracle” of 12 average people coming together and doing justice. This is a true thing and is part of how the American justice system has managed to survive.
