I agree with you xdayton: Kingsfield could give a shit. He is playing a role as "law professor", but that is all it is. I wouldn't imagine he is anything like that outside of Harvard Law School. He WAS wrongly convicted because he was actually innocent. If Tommy's evidence had made it to court, do you think the judge would have said, "Well, Mr. D., it seems you did not kill your wife, but there was loads of evidence against you and you had a bad demeanor in court, so I hold you were properly convicted and send you back to the slammer." I recently watched this film on US tv, and it drove me crazy with the amount of commercials breaking up the film. For crying out loud, the last half hour of the film took about 90 minutes to get through. It was a terrible viewing experience. For me, it was the murder of Tommy. He was such a cool guy, was young and had a great life ahead of him (he had a short sentence and did not look like a repeat offender), and he was killed for trying to do the right thing. Another stubborn person who won't listen to evidence and reason. Well, good for you. At least Ian Fleming didn't make such a bonehead error. I'm discussing the film, you moron. But apparently, your fee-fees get hurt when your big hero, Trump, is shown in his true light. Call my post a "temper tantrum" or whatever you like, you cannot divert attention from the truth forever. I thought the same. I didn't get the feeling he was really telling the truth. Johnboy1221, have you ever even watched the film? How you can call her British is beyond me. Did you not hear Streep speaking with an accent? What was your favorite best picture of all time - let me guess - either Braveheart or Gladiator. I'm assuming the writer chose this ending for a reason, not for shock value. The killing of his beloved, whom he simply cannot resist, is a form a self-hatred. I actually expected the ending to be that Aron went and jumped into the Danube. In that fucked up village, I doubt Aron will ever be brought to justice. The police will just make an official finding that a bandit came and murdered him in his sleep. View all replies >
