Synopsis


The Firm
In this drama, based on the best-selling novel by John Grisham, Mitch McDeer (Tom Cruise) is a young man from a poor Southern family who has struggled through Harvard Law School to graduate fifth in his class. Mitch is entertaining offers from major firms in New York and Chicago, but when Memphis-based Bendini, Lambert, & Locke offer him a 20 percent higher salary than the best offer he's received, in addition to an enticing variety of perks and fringe benefits, he decides to sign on and remain in the South. Mitch's wife, Abby (Jeanne Tripplehorn), warns him that the deal sounds almost too good to be true, but it's not until after several weeks of working with Avery Tolar (Gene Hackman) that Mitch discovers that the vast majority of BL&L's business is tied to organized crime, with crime boss Joey Morolto (Paul Sorvino) using the firm to launder Mafia money. FBI agents Wayne Tarrance (Ed Harris) and F. Denton Voyles (Steven Hill) try to blackmail Mitch into helping them make a case against the firm, while BL&L's "security director" William Devasher (Wilford Brimley) is blackmailing him to do as he's told after Mitch foolishly allows himself to be seduced by a prostitute hired by the firm. The Firm was adapted for the screen by acclaimed playwright David Rabe and features performances by Hal Holbrook, Holly Hunter, and Gary Busey. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Important to separate cruise the man from actor. This movie continues to pick up speed right to the end. Written and made from a long ago seemingly mystical era in this country, it tells the story of what can happen when you become untethered from the ground and let money run your life. Loved it!

    I Enjoyed watching this movie as well as reading the book although it has been several years since I first saw and read the book. I will certainly recommend it to friends and family. This was one of my favorite Tom Cruise movies of all time and John Grisham is an amazing writer!

    Very good adaptation of Grisham's bestselling novel. Wilford Brimley steals a few scenes in a rare bad guy role, and there is suspense throughout. The ending strays a bit from the book, but overall a very good movie, and easy to re-watch.

    This and A Few Good Men are two of Tom's best movies. This one has a terrific performance from Gene Hackman and Holly Hunter as well. The twist at the end is amazing as well.
