'Runaway Jury' on Star Movies

Mumbai, September 19, 2005: In a world of greed and corruption, Runaway Jury is a power-packed courtroom drama that questions the fairness of the trusted 'trial by jury' system of the U.S. Watch RUNAWAY JURY, an adaptation of a John Grisham novel, on Friday, September 23, 2005 at 9:00 p.m. only on STAR MOVIES.

When an attorney is shot in cold blood at his workplace, his widow sues a major gun manufacturer, holding them responsible for his death. She dispatches idealistic lawyer Wendell Rohr to oversee the case, a good man of principle who takes charge of the cause. On the other side, Rankin Fitch takes charge of the defense: a powerful and ruthless jury consultant, Fitch rides high on his frequent successes. But in the middle of it all is the jury, which both Wendell and Rankin are determined to sway their opinion for the winning team. But what they're about to discover, is that one man and one woman stand in their way. Nicholas Easter is one of the jurors and he's the one collaborating with his girlfriend Marlee on the final outcome of the case. But as the case progresses, questions arise as to what the motives are of all those involved, and what some will do to secure the final outcome.



"A breezily entertaining courtroom thriller that again clarifies why Grisham sells so well." - New York Daily News

"A smooth, comfortable ride all the way, with Hackman and Hoffman, of course, the ultimate in fine engineering." - Los Angeles Times

"The best big-screen adaptation of a John Grisham novel since The Firm." - CNN



Runaway Jury boasts the best of young and classic Hollywood, making it a power packed movie with thrilling twists and turns. Watch John Cusack (High Fidelity), Dustin Hoffman (The Graduate), Gene Hackman (The Replacements), Rachel Weisz (About a Boy) and Jeremy Piven (Serendipity) in a movie directed by Gary Fleder (Kiss the Girls).

Did you know:

" This is Gene Hackman's and Dustin Hoffman's first film together. At the Pasadena Playhouse they were classmates and were both voted "Least Likely to Succeed".



" During the argument with Dustin Hoffman in the men's room, Gene Hackman disparagingly mentions "Truth, Justice, and the American way". This is part of Superman's slogan. Hackman played Superman's nemesis, Lex Luthor, in several Superman movies.
