Matt Damon is a small-time lawyer going up against the big boys in this adaptation of John Grisham's bestselling novel. What Rudy Baylor (Damon) lacks in courtroom experience he possesses in conscience, taking on the case of a leukemia victim suing his insurance company for fraud -- even if it means going head to head with a vicious team of lawyers led by the intimidating Leo Drummond (Jon Voight). Special Collector's Edition includes commentary from director Francis Ford Coppola and co-star Danny DeVito, plus deleted scenes and more.
