The Firm


The Firm


John Grisham knows law and lawyers well because he is one himself. When he writes it usually centers around attorneys and courtrooms. The Firm was a hit movie starring Tom Cruise back in 1993 and was based on Grisham's second novel which became a best seller of the same title in 1991. When a young straight arrow Memphis attorney is hired by an organized crime related enterprise he has no idea what he's getting into until the Chicago mob ties become all too apparent. He then becomes a "whistleblower" for the FBI and helps bring down the Memphis law firm Chicago based mob ties. As the TV series begins Mitchell Y. McDeere (Josh Lucas from A Beautiful Mind, Glory Road) and his family emerge from the witness protection program only to encounter challenges, both new and old, that still threaten him and his family. Also starring in The Firm are Molly Parker (Dexter, Shattered) as Abby McDeere wife of Mitch, Callum Keith Rennie (Rookie Blue, The Killing) as Ray McDeere, Natasha Calis (Gone, Alice) as Claire McDeere, and Juliette Lewis from Natural Born Killers, From Dusk till Dawn as Tammy. Perhaps they should have remained in the security of Witness Protection.

Undoubtfully, cinematography has been my passion since a very young age. Even now, watching a new movie or series always prompts me to ask a lot of questions to the author. Thus, every little essay about a title is definitely not a spoiler, but rather an attempt to explore the idea.
