British filmmaker Peter Yates directs Suspect, a suspenseful courtroom drama set in Washington, D.C. After a Supreme Court justice commits suicide and a Justice Department secretary is found dead, a deaf-mute homeless veteran, Carl Wayne Anderson (Liam Neeson), is the suspected killer. Lonely yet dedicated public defender Kathleen Riley (Cher) is assigned to the case to represent Anderson. Suave lobbyist Eddie Sanger (Dennis Quaid) is on the jury, but he starts his own investigation by finding clues that prove Anderson's innocence. He shares his information with Kathleen, even though they could get arrested for talking about the case. Eventually, they develop a romance and reveal a conspiracy that leads to a twist ending. The mysterious conclusion involves a final courtroom scene presided over by Judge Matthew Helms (played by character actor John Mahoney, who would go on to co-star on the sitcom Frasier). ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

    I know this is an old movie and there's not much of an upgrade from DVD to blu but it's still a great thriller. Price is right for the blu so pick it up and add it to your collection. Did I mention Cher is in it?

    I love a good court room drama!


    This is a great drama with alot of suspense and twists. Cher gives a great performance, as does Liam Neason. I think this might have been one of the first movies I saw him in, and he was really good. This one will keep you interested until the end.
