Roman J. Israel, Esq., a driven, idealistic defense attorney, finds himself in a tumultuous series of events that lead to a crisis and the necessity for extreme action.
At the very beginning the Notice document title is spelled with all proper case words (each word initial letter upper case) Except the personal pronoun "he", in this case referring to the author (and narrator) of said document. This implies the writers subservience a higher power, regardless whether it be deity or judicial.
Roman J. Israel, Esq.:
Each of us is better than the worst thing we ever did.
In the beginning of the film, George Pierce (Colin Farrell) is driving his BMW with the new California Legacy (black background & gold lettering) license plates. However, at the end of the film, you see him driving the same BMW but with the standard California license plates (white background, blue lettering).
After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, the film was re-cut by director Dan Gilroy and star Denzel Washington. The new version is 12 minutes shorter than the festival premiere. In addition to dropping some scenes, the film now features different music on the soundtrack (replacing a number of songs) and moves a scene depicting Roman and Israel going to a Lakers game at the Staples Center to an earlier point in the story.
