| A mediocre courtroom drama.
Although the premise of the story was good, I thought that the attitude of the people in the town toward the attorney (Peter Coyote) who was defending the killer was too harsh. The good citizens acted as if they had never heard of lawyer client priviledge. They were ready to drum the lawyer out of town because his client revealed where two of his victims' bodies were located during a priviledged conversation. Everyone, including the DA, who certainly should have known better, vilified the attorney for not saying where the bodies were. It might have more believable if it were just the victims' families who were so angry, but everyone in the town was so outraged that it made me think they were all dolts. It could have been a good movie.
