Die Akte: Directed by Alan J. Pakula. With Julia Roberts, Denzel Washington, Sam Shepard, John Heard. A law student uncovers a conspiracy, putting herself and others in danger.

“JULIA ROBERTS is a damsel in distress when she writes a brief, theorizing what and who was behind the murder of two Supreme Court justices. DENZEL WASHINGTON is the investigative reporter who sees some merit in her theory and reluctantly decides to offer his help in tracking down the bad guys.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s based on a terrific John Grisham thriller and given a well crafted script, good performances and taut direction from Alan J. Pakula. Iu0026#39;m not a fan of either Roherts or Washington, so for me to praise this movie shows you how suspenseful and entertaining it is as a thriller.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe overrated Julia Roberts is a huge box-office star who never once appealed to me despite her enormous popularity and Denzel Washington is a competent actor who sometimes does extra fine work–but neither one would win a popularity poll with me.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo, with that personal bias showing, I still give THE PELICAN BRIEF a respectable rating because it does what it sets out to do–it keeps you hooked until the ending after a few unexpected plot twists totally in keeping with this kind of story where the heroine is in peril because she knows too much.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWell worth a view.”
