A Civil Action

Jan Schlichtmann is een letselschade-advocaat die alleen zaken neemt die hij rustig in de rechtszaal kan doen. Deze nieuwe zaak lijkt aanvankelijk ook simpel, maar hij raakt verzeild in een juridische strijd, waarin hij uiteindelijk alles op het spel zet om recht te krijgen voor zijn cliënten.

A Civil Action (1998) Drama | 115min | 8 January 1999 (USA) 6.6
Director: Steven ZaillianWriter: Jonathan Harr, Steven ZaillianStars: John Travolta, Robert Duvall, Kathleen QuinlanSummary: Jan Schlichtmann, a tenacious lawyer, is addressed by a group of families. When investigating the seemingly non-profiting case, he finds it to be a major environmental issue that has a lot of impact potential. A leather production company could be responsible for several deadly cases of leukemia, but also is the main employer for the area. Schlichtmann and his three colleagues set out to have the company forced to decontaminate the affected areas, and of course to sue for a major sum of compensation. But the lawyers of the leather company's mother company are not easy to get to, and soon Schlichtmann and his friends find themselves in a battle of mere survival.
