1993 Certificate: 12


Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington lead this intriguing conspiracy thriller based on John Grisham's eco-based bestseller. Roberts plays a law student who unwittingly puts her life in danger when she develops a theory about the murders of two judges. It's a wild claim, but Washington's big city reporter thinks there might be something in it... especially when everyone who's read it starts turning up dead. Sam Shepard and John Lithgow find themselves caught in the deadly mire.
