John Grisham’s bestseller A Time to Kill is a forceful crime thriller, directed by Joel Schumacher (Batman Forever, The Client). Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson, Matthew McConaughey and Kevin Spacey, all star in a murder trial that brings a small Mississippi town’s racial tensions to boiling point.
Amid a frenzy of activist marches, Klan terror, media clamour and brutal riots, an unseasoned but idealistic young attorney mounts a stirring courtroom battle for justice. The superb cast also includes Brenda Fricker, Oliver Platt, Charles S. Dutton, Ashley Judd, Patrick McGoohan, Chris Cooper and both Donald and Kiefer Sutherland. These and other talents make A Time to Kill an unmissable movie.
