The plot starts with Hank Palmer ( Robert Downey Jr One of the Hollywood’s elite and utmost paid actor >> Read More... .), who is a successful defense attorney, returning to his hometown. He reunites with his brothers, Glen (Vincent D’Onofrio) and Dale (Jeremy Strong). Hank’s father, Joseph Palmer ( Robert Duvall Robert Duvall is a veteran actor and filmmaker kno >> Read More... ), who is also the judge of the town, is suspected of murder. 

The relationship of Hank with his father is complicated. The dynamics of this father-son relationship is the primary focus of the movie. Director David Dobkin starts off well and tries to make the film interesting. Few scenes are scripted brilliantly and are extremely touching. But as the movie progresses clichés pile up. 

The melodrama increases and at times the movie drags. The actors make a great effort to keep your interest. Robert Downey Jr is extremely convincing as the hot-shot lawyer, and Robert Duvall is very impressive in his role. They are unforgettable as the father-son duo. Their performance drives the movie. 

Jeremy Strong plays an autistic aspiring filmmaker, and his innocent questions make way for some obtuse humor. Samantha ( Vera Farmiga She’s considered to be a Hollywood horror-empress. >> Read More... ) is Hank’s ex-girlfriend who was dumped by Hank 20 years ago. She also has a daughter. Vera Farmiga gives the movie a romantic angle but does not have much role. 

The courtroom scenes do seem promising, but certain extremely predictable scenes hamper the experience. Although the movie falters in places, the acting performances hold it together. The film does not fail at entertaining its audience and is worth a watch.
