A hotshot, take no prisoners lawyer gets called home to handle a family tragedy, only to watch his father’s life quickly start to unravel when he’s accused of murder. That’s the premise of the new Warner Bros. flick, The Judge. An incredibly handsome Robert Downey Jr. (like, really, has he always been this cute?) stars as a big city defense lawyer who’s made a life of defending the guilty, while never looking back. His father, Robert Duvall, is a well-respected small town judge with a tough as nails personality. The two are famously estranged, but now, the judge needs his son. And, thus begins the tension and plotline of the film. Take a look.
The Judge will make you laugh, cry and maybe even question your professional purpose. It’s a great look inside a family –a dysfunctional one, but whose isn’t?– that’s trying to discover the love they lost. I give it 4 out of 5 cauldrons. The Judge opens Friday, October 10th.
Will you go see it?
