The Firm

A suspenseful and entertaining film brought to life from a John Grisham novel is a movie about a prodigy lawyer, right out of law school, who has nearly every powerful firm wanting to employ him. Then along comes an incredibly powerful law firm from Memphis, Tennessee offering an unbelievable paycheck and even a sports car for his services. He takes the job, but soon after, he discovers that it is up to something incredibly illegal. This results in him getting caught up with the FBI, who wants him to feed them valuable information, and his suspicious colleagues who would rather kill than have him helping the FBI. A nicely done film that is definitely a good choice to rent.
