Movie Info

Peter Dexter adapted his National Book Award-winning novel for this probing made-for-cable film featuring Dennis Hopper in the title role as an unrepentant racist in 1949 Georgia. Trout is a greedy and paranoid shopkeeper who murders the sister and mother of a black man who refuses to repay Trout's IOU. When Trout is arrested for the crimes, he can't comprehend why he would be aprehended for his actions. Lawyer Harry Seagraves (Ed Harris) arrives to represent Trout in court, but Seagroves dislikes defending a man whom he feels deserves to be punished.

Audience Reviews for Paris Trout

Good but not great work by Dennis Hopper and Ed Harris. They try but the script does not provide them with enough to work with.

Dennis Hopper manages to create one of the most despicable villains ever supported by great performances by Hershey and Harris.
