The Verdict (1982)

Director: Sidney Lumet. Cast: Paul Newman, Jack Warden, Charlotte Rampling, James Mason. 129 min. Rated R. Drama.

Talking of insurmountable odds. A lawyer trying to prosecute a medical malpractice case, and every living creature on Earth (the defense, the judge, his girlfriend, ... even his own client!) are against him. This makes for a very appropriately bleak courtroom drama, during which predominantly the captivating performances of its legends (namely, Newman and Mason) got me through. A must-see for any Newman or Lumet fan.
