Film information

Story: Triple bill of law dramas. Matt Damon stars in 'The Rainmaker' (1997), Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of John Grisham's novel, as Rudy Baylor, a precocious trainee lawyer. When he enters a shady law practice, Baylor is given the benefit of his boss's (Mickey Rourke) experience on one condition: he must bring his own business to the firm. One such case involves Baylor suing an insurance company that refuses to pay the medical bills of a young boy who is critically ill. Facing a highly experienced legal team (led by Jon Voight), Baylor's task is made even harder by his boss's arrest, which leaves him with just one ally: a fellow employee in his firm, the feisty 'paralawyer' Deck Shifflet (Danny DeVito). Sydney Pollack directs 'The Firm' (1993), based on John Grisham's first novel. Hotshot Harvard law graduate Mitch McDeere (Tom Cruise) is headhunted and enrolled by a small firm of lawyers based away from New York City, offering him a large pay package. When the FBI tell Mitch that the firm is a front for the illegal activities of the Mob, he investigates further - endangering himself and his wife (Jeanne Tripplehorn). In 'Changing Lanes' (2002), hotshot New York attorney Gavin Banek (Ben Affleck) and recovering alcoholic Doyle Gibson (Samuel L. Jackson) find their lives intertwined on the evening of Good Friday when their cars collide. Late for a meeting, Banek gives Doyle a blank cheque to cover the damage, while Doyle's car is a write-off and he is late for a custody-hearing. But not only have their cars collided, they also end up accidentally walking away with important files of each others - in fact, Doyle loses his house and family as a result of it. Thus begins a cat and mouse game to retrieve the files - and it seems neither man is ready to play clean.
