IMDB: An attorney intending on climbing the career ladder toward success finds an unlikely opponent in a manipulative criminal he is trying to prosecute.
First of all, WHAT A SNEAKY OLD BASTARD! Huh?
Spoiler: Ted is a rich engineer who shoots his wife for having an affair. The police (who has been screwing his wife) arrived at the scene. Ted confesses and he hands him the gun. They have the murderer, they have the weapon, they have a confession. It seems like a very easy case that was passed on to be handled by Beachum. But as if Ted planned everything, there are a couple of mind games along the way. What are those conflicts? Ted wanted to be his own lawyer. The weapon that was handed to the police is not the same one that killed the victim. The confession is inadmissible because the police that he confessed to is the same one his wife is having an affair with. In the end? Ted was handed freedom. OR NOT. Watch the movie for the final twist!
Salute to Ted for learning how the justice system works and making it work for him! His mischievous grin gives away his evil plot. How can Beachum not be suspicious that Ted wanted to represent himself? That’s a red flag. Ain’t it?
‘If you look closely enough, you’ll find that everything has a weak spot where it can break, sooner or later. — You looking for mine? — I’ve already found yours. — What is it? — You’re a winner, Willy. ” —— I’m not quite sure if I interpreted it correctly. But I think this is where the moral conflict comes in. As a winner, he will do anything to convict the murderer. But there really is no evidence. So beachum was struggling whether to manipulate the evidence & break the law to win the case or fail.
It’s definitely a movie you’ll watch until the end. You’ll just be so curious as to how he devised to get away with killing his own beloved wife.
