Critic Reviews for Trial

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • A hard-hitting realistic drama which shows with disturbing clarity how political racketeers skilled in the black arts of showmanship can flourish under the protection of the very laws they despise.

Audience Reviews for Trial

  • Jul 04, 2019
    Trial is a film with depth and an especially strong performance by Arthur Kennedy. His character, a seemingly earnest defense attorney, enlists a law professor (Glenn Ford) to represent a Latino teen accused of murder. Kennedy steals the.film from Glenn Ford who lays things a little too thick at times. Director Mark Robson and legendary cinematographer Robert Surtees more than do justice to the material.
