And Justice For All (1979)

A scruffy and idealistic lawyer (Al Pacino) fights corruption and favouritism in the American judicial system during a controversial rape case.

Tangling with a tyrannical judge (John Forsythe), Pacino generates much power in a fascinating and compelling movie, featuring unforgettable performances and Norman Jewison’s well-paced direction.

First seen in prison where he’s serving time for contempt, Pacino’s attorney is a crusader, fighting corruption within his profession with a zeal that real-life lawyers can only dream of.

Watch out for a nice cameo by Lee Strasberg, the legendary Method acting teacher who starred as Pacino’s Jewish mobster rival in The Godfather, Part II.
