An arrogant, high-powered attorney takes on the case of a poor altar boy found running away from the scene of the grisly murder of the bishop who has taken him in. The case gets a lot more complex when the accused reveals that there may or may not have been a 3rd person in the room. The intensity builds when a surprise twist alters everyone's perception of the crime.

Movie Parental Guide

nudity References to sexual abuse.
violence A brief scene in which a man is attacked with a large knife. His fingers of one hand are cut off in medium close-up followed by a shot of him in anguish with his mutilated hand in view. There is a large spray of blood and the attack, although momentary, is very bloody and disturbing. Immediately afterwards, the ensuing murder is witnessed in part from outside the room, with windows being smashed, although detail is obscured by curtains. A man is seen covered in blood, running away from chasing police officers. At a few points in the film, images of the attacked man's dead body are shown. These are graphic gory images including his empty, bloodied eye sockets and several large knife wounds over much of his body. Blood stains are present on the carpet, walls and curtains. Occasionally, there are references to details of the attack such as that the man was stabbed 78 times, although these are not very descriptive. A man is threatened with a knife after a chase scene. Said man is then threatened with a gun. A man is pushed against a wall and hit across the head. There is sight of a little blood in a following scene. This is momentary and mild. A man's corpse is seen being dragged out of a river with a clear gunshot wound in the jaw. His corpse is watered and gray. A woman is attacked by a man who holds her throat. This is not only brief but undetailed as the scene features much panic. The woman escapes unharmed quite soon and the man is restrained.
profanity Around 40 uses of fuck. Shit, Jesus, hell, damn, etc., are also used
alcohol Some smoking of cigarettes at points during the film - one character is shown smoking several times, although it is not glamorized. Some drinking of alcohol, although none to excess.
frightening The attack scene is both shocking and brutal, and further images and descriptions of the corpse have the potential to upset some viewers. There is a chase scene, followed by a scene in which characters are threatened with both a knife and a gun. The courtroom scenes are often quite intense. One character pretends to suffer from Multiple Personality Disorder, which results in some shocking and intense moments. Suggested MPAA Rating: R for strong language, some sexuality and brief graphic violence.
