Directed by Alan J. Pakula, the film stars Harrison Ford, Brian Dennehy, Raul Julia, Bonnie Bedelia, Paul Winfield, and Greta Scacchi. It was the eighth highest grossing film of 1990, grossing $221 million worldwide. A sequel, Scott Turow's Innocent, was a made-for-TV movie aired as part of TNT's Mystery Movie Night series in December 2011. "Rusty" Sabich (Ford) is a prosecutor and the right-hand man of Prosecuting Attorney Raymond Horgan (Dennehy). When his colleague Carolyn Polhemus (Scacchi) is found raped and murdered in her apartment, Raymond insists that Rusty take charge of the investigation. The election for County PA is approaching and Tommy Molto (Grifasi), the acting head of Homicide, has left to join the rival campaign of Nico Della Guardia (Mardirosian).
