Their chosen lawyer is a cousin, with inexperience, and a very loud personality at that. He is not accustomed to Southern rules and gentile manners and this creates a large problem for all. Will he be able to successfully represent his nephew and free him from the murder charges? Marissa Tomei steals the show. Cast: Joe Pesci, Marisa Tomei, Fred Gwynne, Ralph Macchio, Mitchell Whitfield, Bruce McGill, James Rebhorn, Lane Smith.

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. NO TICKETS REQUIRED
