Reversal of Fortune

1990 Rated R 1hr 49m

In this tauntingly ambiguous courtroom drama, the enigmatic Claus von Bülow (Jeremy Irons) stands accused of putting his wife, Sunny (Glenn Close), into a perpetual coma with an insulin overdose. Claus hires hard-charging attorney Alan Dershowitz (Ron Silver), who scrambles to defend his client -- with help from some impassioned Harvard law students -- while Sunny narrates flashbacks that shed light on the events that lead to her condition.
