Pro Say Movie Club - A Time To Kill
Listen now
Description
The Pro Say Movie Club makes its maiden voyage into the world of John Grisham with a discussion of A Time To Kill, the 1996 adaptation directed by Joel Schumacher and starring just about every famous actor from the 90s. It’s the story of Mississippi litigator Jake Brigance and his defense of Carl Lee Hailey, a black man who took the lives of two white men to avenge a brutal assault on his daughter. This week’s show dives into the movie’s sprawling and somewhat chaotic structure; venue and bail fights; the perils of testifying in your own murder trial; iconic courtroom outbursts; and so much more.
