John Grisham's bestseller A Time To Kill hits the screen with incendiary force, directed by Joel Schumacher. Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson, Matthew McConaughey and Kevin Spacey portray the principals in a murder trial that brings a small Mississippi town's racial tensions to the flashpoint. Amid a frenzy of activist marches, Klan terror, media clamour and brutal riots, an unseasoned but idealistic young attorney mounts a stirring courtroom battle for justice. The superb Chris Cooper and both Donald and Kiefer Sutherland. These and other talents make A Time To Kill "one of the year's most powerful films" (Jeffrey Lyons, Sneak Preview/ABC World News Now).
