#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Rozat Sabich – Rusty to most that know him, even in formal circumstances – is the Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Kindle County, Illinois. His wife, Barbara Sabich, has been struggling with focus on completing her Ph.D. dissertation in Mathemetics – a thus far ten year process – she who nonetheless is applying for a college teaching position. They are generally in a loving, supportive marriage, Barbara who seems to have gotten over Rusty’s infidelity with his colleague Carolyn Polhemus, an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney. Carolyn is ambitious, she who, in part, used Rusty to try and climb up the ladder. Barbara will still throw the issue of Carolyn in his face whenever there are problems between the two. Rusty and Carolyn’s affair is unknown to others in their personal and professional circles. Rusty is handed the most personal case of his career when his boss and mentor, Chief Prosecuting Attorney Raymond Horgan, assigns him the case to discover who killed Carolyn, her dead body found in her apartment in what looks initially to be a violent rape, with Carolyn eventually strangled and no sign of forced entry, leading to the belief her killer was whoever her lover or possibly someone she prosecuted. Raymond, who is in a difficult reelection campaign, wants a quick resolution to the investigation, as “finding the killer” will greatly increase his chances of getting reelected. Rusty tries to dissuade Raymond from giving him the case because of the affair of which Raymond is unaware, with Rusty eventually having no choice but to accept barring disclosure of the affair. As Rusty proceeds with the investigation, he takes steps to hide the affair largely to protect Barbara and their adolescent son, Nat Sabich. Those measures come back to bite him when they and other evidence collected by the police lead to him being charged for Carolyn’s murder. Rusty hires Sandy Stern, one of his toughest adversaries in a number of previous cases. During the court proceedings, many involved do whatever they can protect their own interest regardless of the truth. Beyond Rusty being convicted or acquitted, a question thus becomes if the truth matters or if the murderer will ever be discovered.
Plot: Rusty Sabich is a deputy prosecutor engaged in an obsessive affair with a coworker who is murdered. Soon after, he’s accused of the crime. And his fight to clear his name becomes a whirlpool of lies and hidden passions.

Love – it’s a killer.

Presumed Innocent is directed by Alan J. Pakula, who also co-adapts for the screen with Frank Pierson from the Scott Turow novel. It stars Harrison Ford, Brian Dennehy, Bonnie Bedelia, Raúl Juliá, Paul Winfield, John Spencer and Greta Scacchi. Music is scored by John Williams and Richard Wolf, and cinematography is by Gordon Willis.

Prosecuting attorney Rusty Sabich (Ford) suddenly finds himself a murder suspect after his one time lover, Carolyn Polhemus (Scacchi), is found raped and murdered in her home. As the evidence piles up against him, and his marriage comes under further strain, Rusty hires top lawyer Sandy Stern (Juliá) to represent him when the case goes to trial. Battling the system that he knows inside out, Rusty finds that there’s a big can of worms about to be opened.

A tip top court room mystery drama that we could do with seeing more of these days. Expertly strung together by the director of All the Presidents Men and Sophie’s Choice, Presumed Innocent isn’t just a by the numbers legal who done it? The makers get in deep with the political machinations of a district attorney’s office, the intricate steps of a police investigation, and of course the legal eagle operations of a court room. In to the mix is an horrendous crime, of which a lawyer himself is charged with committing, he may or may not be guilty of the crime, but wonderfully we are never sure until the astonishing finale plays out. The air of mystery hangs heavy throughout, nagging away like an itch you can’t scratch, with Pakula neatly unfolding the drama in a collage of flashbacks, side-plots and present time intricacies. Mood is heightened by the photography of Gordon Willis, who along with Pakula’s looming camera work, manages to convey a claustrophobic feel in keeping with an unstable marriage and a court room itself.

A great cast is assembled for the picture. Ford expertly plays it low key, brooding intently, he makes us unsure as to his guilt or innocence, and that’s a testament to how good his performance is. Bedelia is excellent as the stoic wife, holding it together as the marital cracks begin to appear, and Juliá dominates the second half of the picture as we shift to the court room. Dennehy does a nice line in morally compromised smarm, and Scacchi wonderfully exudes a femme fatale sexuality. Winfield is a mighty presence as the judge presiding over such a tricky case, and Spencer is as reliable as ever. Only disappointments come with the performances of Joe Grifasi and Tom Mardirosian, who as the prosecutors come across as wimpy and hardly brick tight lawyers trying a high profile murder case.

An intense and intellectual adult drama, Presumed Innocent is one of the best of its type from the modern era. 8.5/10

Pretty good mystery-legal-drama features fine performances, especially from Ford and Raul Julia, though does rely a lot on coincidences (lucky draw to get that judge) but still finely directed and liked John Williams’s score. **3.75/5**

Similar Themes To “The Fugitive”
Released three years apart from each other, “Presumed Innocent” (1990) and “The Fugitive” (1993) share similar themes. Though “The Fugitive” plays for more action/adventure while “Presumed Innocent” is much more a courtroom drama, each movie has the “man accused of a crime” (but the audience doesn’t know if he actually did it) theme running through it.

For a basic plot summary, “Presumed Innocent” opens with Rusty Sabich (Harrison Ford) as a high-profile deputy prosecutor working for Raymond Horgan (Brian Dennehy). When a co-worker of Rusty’s, Carolyn Polhemus (Greta Scacchi) is murdered, Rusty suddenly finds himself on the top of the suspect list.

I have watched this movie twice and found that it didn’t hold up as well with time as I thought it might have. Yet, on your first, fresh viewing of this movie, you’ll probably find it quite engrossing. It has solid acting, an intriguing plot, and an ending that you won’t see coming. After that initial viewing, though, much of the suspense and surprise is lost and it doesn’t hold up quite as well.

I actually like this one a tad better than “The Fugitive”, though. This one planted a real seed of doubt in my head regarding who was guilty/innocent, where “Fugitive” never went that far for me. I also could appreciate the “lawyer now being tried for a crime” angle to “Presumed Innocent”, as it gave Ford’s character some interesting angles.

Overall, “Presumed Innocent” is a pretty solid movie. If you’ve never seen it and are a fan of court dramas or Harrison Ford, I would recommend it. Just don’t expect it to be part of your “permanent collection of classics”. It doesn’t hold up quite that well.

for a good part of the first half this really looks as if it is going somewhere.
There is something wrong with this. Harrison Ford’s tendency towards diffidence actually helps him here and there is sufficient edginess to the crime to engage the viewer with the power struggling between the various males enough to maintain momentum. There are moments, however, when we suspend disbelief, in the hope that events will make amends and that the overall complexities will reveal something we were not originally aware of. All well and good but the flat ending to the protracted court proceedings followed by the jaw dropping conclusion leave one feeling cheated for having invested in some of the half baked and more ridiculous moments. Pakula seems to have lost the plot somewhere for although the difficulties may be problems inherent with the original novel it is unlikely for surely then nobody would have been drawn to filming it in the first place. It is a shame because for a good part of the first half this really looks as if it is going somewhere.
