Scott Turow's Innocent

"Scott Turow's Innocent" review by Suzanne
Premieres Tuesday, November 29, at 9pm ET/PT on TNT.

TNT is doing this new thing called "Mystery Movie Night", where they are showing these new crime dramas. The first one is based on the book by Scott Turow; it is a sequel to the 1990 book and movie "Presumed Innocent", starring Harrison Ford, Bonnie Bedelia and Raul Julia. That was a really good movie, and this sequel is really good as well. It stars Bill Pullman, Marcia Gay Harden, and Alfred Molina in those same roles. You don't have to have watched the original movie, though, to enjoy this one because they do sometimes refer back to it.

Rusty Sabich was a prosecutor in the first movie, and now he's a judge. He was put on trial for killing his lover and co-worker in the first movie, and in this one, he does have another affair, but she is not the victim. I don't want to spoil what happens, but it's very good and has a lot of twists and turns. This cast of actors is really great and don't disappoint. If you look good dramas, you should watch this one. I don't know why it's not a major film like the other one (maybe because the actors are older?).

TNT has released a promo from The TNT Mystery Movie Night, an all-new original movie showcase of six contemporary crime dramas set to launch Tuesday, Nov. 29, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). The showcase will kick off with Scott Turow's Innocent, starring Bill Pullman, Marcia Gay Harden, Alfred Molina, Richard Schiff and Tahmoh Penikett. The TNT Mystery Movie Night will also star John Corbett, Julie Benz, Kelly Overton and Gary Cole in Ricochet, based on the bestseller by Sandra Brown.

Scott Turow's Innocent - Tuesday, Nov. 29 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

Bill Pullman (Independence Day, Torchwood) stars as Rusty Sabich, a judge charged with the murder of his wife, a situation that comes 20 years after he was cleared in the death of his mistress. During this latest trial, a secret affair from Rusty's recent past threatens to hamper his defense and fracture his relationship with his son. Oscar(R) winner Marcia Gay Harden (Pollack, Damages) plays Rusty's wife, while Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2, Law & Order: LA) is his friend and defense attorney. Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica, Dollhouse) is hot-headed prosecutor Jim Brand. Emmy(R) winner Richard Schiff (The West Wing, The Lost World: Jurassic Park), Callard Harris (Glory Daze, Intermedio) and Mariana Klaveno (True Blood, While the Children Sleep) also star. Scott Turow's Innocent is a sequel to Turow's bestseller Presumed Innocent. The movie is written and directed by Mike Robe (TNT's HawthoRNe, Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King), with Robe and Frank von Zerneck (We Were the Mulvaneys, Miracle on Ice) serving as executive producers.
