Synopsis


Jagged Edge
In this hit thriller, a prosecuting attorney-turned-defense lawyer falls in love with a rich, charming client who's been accused of murdering his wife and her maid with a hunting knife. When an unknown assailant gruesomely slays San Francisco newspaper heiress Paige Forrester (Maria Mayenzet), her husband and business partner, Jack Forrester (Jeff Bridges), turns to corporate attorney Teddy Barnes (Glenn Close) for counsel. Teddy, who quit her job with the district attorney's office four years earlier over an ethical dilemma, has reservations about returning to criminal work; nevertheless, she accepts the assignment, convinced of Jack's innocence and eager to face off in court against her old boss, DA Thomas Krasny (Peter Coyote), who's about run for attorney general. With the help of investigator Sam Ransom (Robert Loggia), the recently divorced Teddy builds a strong defense for her client, though the work -- and her incipient romance with Jack -- cause strain in her relationship with her children. When Jack's innocence and his romantic intentions come into question, Teddy feels her life slipping back into a moral quagmire until a series of courtroom denouements set the stage for even bigger surprises. Big-name screenwriter Joe Eszterhas' follow-up to Flashdance, Jagged Edge was directed by Richard Marquand, who had previously lensed Return of the Jedi. Parts of Jagged Edge were shot on-location in San Francisco, whose City Hall provides the film's courtroom exteriors. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi

    This is another thriller from the guy who wrote Basic Instinct, but with less nudity and better acting. Glenn Close plays a lawyer who falls for a man accused of murdering his wife and it looks like the DA is setting him up. To say much more would give away the twist, but the only problem I had with this was they fall in love too quick

    Not for the faint of heart. This is a movie that will keep you in suspense. I recommend it for over 16 years old. One mistake I caught was near the end with the blood splatter on the hassock. There and then not there. Buy this if you got the nerve.

    This movie is so gripping, and at times has you on the edge of your seat. Jeff Bridges is one of my favorite actors and definately did not diappoint, and Glenn Close was so good in this movie. This movie has a great twist ending.
