Primal Fear (1996)
Starring a rather young and naive looking Edward Norton, Richard Gere and Laura Linney
; this movie is about an altar boy who is accused of murdering a rather influential priest of the local clergy and how nothing is as it seems about the whole case.
One of Norton's best performances yet prior to the acclaimed part he played as a reformed Neo-Nazi leader and white supremecist in American History X
, he steals every scene he's in; being able to switch between his character's (who's accused of murder) meek and stuttery persona, and the demented, psychopathic one is one of the highlights of the movie.
Others play a servicable role in their parts; Gere as the defense lawyer who thought he had things fully under his control and Linney, who plays the role as Gere's ex, and also the prosecutor of the case.
All in all a solid 7.5/10
for me. Primal Fear (1996) - IMDb
