Presumed Innocent (1990)

What I particularly love about this dated mystery drama is the title. I found myself pondering the topics of the film and the opening and closing statements for days following having watched it.

Harrison Ford plays a prosecuting lawyer who is charged with the murder of his mistress. The story follows his struggle to prove his innocence in the face of politics, home problems, and a corrupt legal system.

While films have come a long way in keeping the subplots more submerged, I really liked the story told here.
