Reversal Of Fortune (1990)
Genre: Mystery Drama (USA, Japan, UK)
Starring: Jeremy Irons (Dead Ringers • M. Butterfly), Glenn Close (Fatal Attraction • Hamlet (1990))
Directed By: Barbet Schroeder (Barfly • Single White Female)
Overview: Based on Alan Dershowitz's book Reversal of Fortune: Inside the von Bülow Case, this is the true story of the Claus von Bülow murder trial appeal.
MINNIE: Yeah, okay, so, someone's got to defend Claus. But why you, why us?
ALAN DERSHOWITZ: Look, you're my student, you, you have a choice. You don't have to do anything you don't want to do; that is your choice. The reason *I* take cases - and here I'm unlike most other lawyers, who are not professors and therefore have to make a living - I take cases because I get pissed off. And I am pissed off here. The family hired a private prosecutor: unacceptable! They conducted a private search! Now if we let them get away with that, rich people won't go to the cops any more. You know what they're going to do? They're going to get their own lawyers to collect evidence - and then they are going to choose which evidence they feel like passing on to the DA. And the next victim isn't going to be rich, like von Bülow - but it's going to be some poor schnook in Detroit who can't afford, or who can't find, a decent lawyer.
RAJ: I agree von Bülow is guilty, but then, that's the fun - that's the challenge. ALAN DERSHOWITZ: Now *THERE* is a lawyer.
