Saw a trailer for this in the US in March and still can’t believe it: Sidney Lumet, who gave us Twelve Angry Men fifty years ago, returns to directing courtroom drama at the age of eighty-two. Only this time it’s a comedic courtroom thriller about a mafioso who defends himself. And the actor playing this role (with a full if implausible head of hair)? Vin Diesel, of course.
Please, someone who’s seen it, tell me if it’s any good: it can’t possibly measure up to that prospectus.
