Movie: The Pelican Brief

A law student uncovers a conspiracy, putting herself and others in danger. The best of movies based on John Grisham's legal thrillers (in my opinion). The last film from Alan J. Pakula before his death (And similar to his earlier Paranoia trilogy, Klute, Parallax View and All the President's Men). Memorable Pelican theme by James Horner. Terrific cast. Love this.
