Screenplay: David Mamet (based on the play by Terrence Rattigan). Twitter Capsule:
Odd, negative-space courtroom drama where you never see the trial everyone's on about. Part enigmatic, part inert.
Curious in many ways, if not fully compelling. Unusual structure, atypical deployment of Mamet tone and cadence, and intruiging on gender and ellipsis.
