Francis Ford Coppola directs and scripts a compelling, star-packed adaptation of John Grisham's novel about an idealistic young attorney who takes on the case of a lifetime.
Matt Damon plays Rudy Baylor, a rookie lawyer in over his head on a high-profile case. Opposing him: an army of seasoned legal sharks (led by Jon Voight). On Rudy's side: Deck Shifflet (Danny DeVito), a feisty "paralawyer" who specialises in flunking the bar exam. Rudy's chances are slim to none - until he uncovers a trail of corruption that might lead to the one thing that could win his case: the truth.
