Intricately-plotted legal thriller based on the bestseller by acclaimed crime novelist Michael Connelly. Matthew McConaughey plays criminal defence lawyer Mickey Haller, who prefers working out of the back of his Lincoln town car to sitting in an office. When Haller takes on rich young real estate broker Louis Ross Roulet (Ryan Phillippe) as a client, the case seems pretty cut-and-dried. As events progress, however, Haller starts to doubt Roulet's veracity, and echoes from past cases come back to haunt him. Before too long, Haller knows he's being played by a pro, but to what end and for what purpose? Marisa Tomei, John Leguizamo and William H. Macy co-star while Brad Furman directs.
