PRESUMED INNOCENT by ESTEFANÍA (LOW B2)

Presumed_innocent_SLCS7038

 

Presumed Innocent was directed by Allan Pakula and is based on a novel by Scott Turow who is one of America’s most popular writers, and also a practising lawyer. Starring Harrison Ford and Greta Scacchi, the film was the tenth highest-earning film of the year in the United States.

The film takes place in the fictional Kindle County (condado de Kindle) in the USA and it’s set in the 20th century. It begins when Carolyn Pholemus (Greta Scacchi) is murdered in her apartment. Horgan, a prosecuting attorney for the Kindle County, needs the crime to be solved as soon as possible so that the situation isn’t able to damage him in his campaigning. For this reason, he assigned the investigation to Rusty Sabiech (Harrison Ford), the most reputable prosecutor of his office an co-worker of Carolyn. However, Horgan doesn’t know that a few months before the murder Carolyn and Rusty had been lovers, although, she broke up the romance months later. The plot thickens when investigators find Rusty’s prints on a glass of Carolyn’s and some phone calls between the two on the day of the crime. All the evidence suggested that Rusty was the principal suspect. Someone had set him up. That’s why he decided to hire a good lawyer to defend and seek the real murderer. He realized that everyone seemed more innocent than they were.

Allan Pakula makes few changes to Turow’s novel and makes the end really moving. In my opinion, it’s a fast-paced film, which provides a good mix between action and suspense. The plot is very intelligent, as well as it keeps your interest from the first moment, because you don’t know who the murderer is until the end. In addition, I like the soundtrack because it creates a suspense-filled atmosphere throughout the film. The star’s performance is one of the best I’ve ever seen. I highly recommend the film to everyone.
