Jeremy Irons stars in an Academy Award-winning role with Glenn Close, Christine Baranski and a high-powered supporting cast as Claus von Bülow, an aristocratic, moral reprobate who's guilty of attempted murder but found legally innocent in a stunning Reversal of Fortune. In this shocking, witty true story that reveals life in a wealthy American upper class that shamelessly feels no guilt over the consequences of its actions, a story that examines a legal system that sets the guilty free, von Bülow injects his wife, Sunny (Close), with an overdose of insulin. She does not die as he planned but remains in a persistent vegetative state. A jury finds von Bülow guilty, but brilliant attorney Alan Dershowitz and his team of bright young law students manage to cast enough doubt on the trial to overturn the conviction--even as they focus only on the academic legal questions and not on the terrible crime that has been committed.

Personally did not think much of this one. Found it rather slow and boring.
