Winner Best Feature – Grand Rapids Film Festival
Based on the Award-Winning Novel from Robert Whitlow
Rediscover the value of life when THE TRIAL, a riveting courtroom drama, arrives on DVD November 9, 2010 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. THE TRIAL follows small-town attorney Kent “Mac” McClain (Matthew Modine; Full Metal Jacket, Any Given Sunday), who is left devastated and purposeless by the horrific death of his wife and two sons in a tragic accident. After concluding that suicide is his only escape, McClain agrees to take on one final case. Defending accused murderer Peter Thomason (Randy Wayne; To Save a Life) against capital punishment, McClain begins the trial that transforms his life and the lives of those around him forever.
Distinguished filmmaker and producer Gary Wheeler (The List) creates a gripping interpretation of the best-selling book as THE TRIAL leaps from page to screen. The result is a legal thriller with a thought-provoking perspective on issues of life, death and the search for meaning in truth. The film also stars Rance Howard (Jonah Hex, Frost/Nixon), Academy Award® nominee** Robert Forster (Jackie Brown) and Bob Gunton (“24”).
