Joseph Ruben in True Believer

True Believer

1989 R

Burnt-out civil rights lawyer James Woods's career has devolved into defense for known drug dealers. But he gets a shot at redemption when a starry-eyed legal assistant (Robert Downey Jr.) goads him into taking the case of an innocent man who's spent 8 years in jail for a murder he didn't commit. Woods sizzles in the film that Leonard Maltin calls "entertaining all the way."
