The trailer for this week’s throwback Thursday is for Joel Schumacher’s riveting 1996 film adaption of John Grisham’s bestselling legal suspense novel, “A Time to Kill”, starring Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Spacey, Oliver Platt, & Ashley Judd, among others. A Time to Kill centers around a fictional murder trial which brings a small Mississippi town’s racial tensions to the flash-point. Amidst the frenzy, an idealistic young attorney mounts a stirring courtroom battle for justice. As a kid, I watched A Time to Kill under the supervision of my parents of course. From what I can remember, the movie was powerful in its intentions, complete with ace performances, dynamic court scenes, and a touching ending. If you’re into social justice stuff especially, I highly recommend A Time to Kill.
