Synopsis Director Gary Fleder (THINGS TO DO IN DENVER WHEN YOU'RE DEAD, KISS THE GIRLS) tackles best-selling novelist John Grisham's tale of jury manipulation in RUNAWAY JURY. Jury consultant Rankin Fitch (Gene Hackman) can spin any jury in favor of his client. At least he always could before. But his latest job may turn out to be his most challenging. As an explosive civil case goes to trial in New Orleans, Fitch thinks he has arranged for the perfect jury and has the verdict sealed in favor of his client, a gun manufacturer. Soon, however, he starts receiving phone calls from the mysterious Marlee (Rachel Weisz), who claims that she can turn the jury any way she wants and--for a price--she'll spin it his way. Meanwhile, Marlee is making the same offer to the plaintiff's lawyer, Wendell Rohr (Dustin Hoffman), a Southern gentleman who always plays by the rules. Marlee's insider is Juror #9, Nick Easter (John Cusack), who is working with her to influence his fellow jurors. Are these two just grifters in it for the money, or do they have another agenda? The audience is kept guessing until the very end....A faster, more agile bundle of entertainment than the book......Mr. Cusack wrings contradictions out of his genial, buffoonish persona that show an actor's canniness at work....Nora Dunn gleams as an upstanding and unsteady juror......The performers are pros down to Bruce McGill's credible turn as the judge......How it all plays out comes as a nifty surprise, involving a series of dramatic twists......Absorbing....[The] cast has a grand time with the tale's histrionic possibilities...Theatrical Release Date: October 17, 2003[P]acy, polished entertainment....Fleder has made a brisk, enjoyable popcorn movie...[A] classy potboiler.
