True Believer – Retro VHS Style [Blu-ray]


The killing. The conviction. The cover-up.

James Woods is about to go up against corruption and conspiracy at the highest levels of New York City law enforcement in the action-packed courtroom drama, True Believer. Woods is spellbinding as Eddie Dodd, once an acclaimed civil rights attorney of the ’60s, now an embittered cynic who makes a living defending drug-dealing low-lifes. Dodd’s passion for justice is rekindled when an idealistic young associate (Robert Downey, Jr.) urges him to re-open an eight-year-old murder case involving a young prisoner serving life in Sing Sing for a gang initiation killing. Dodd’s frenetic search for the truth takes him through a harrowing maze of unscrupulous prosecutors, white supremacist hate groups and corrupt cops. But is he willing to put his life on the line in defense of his beliefs? A powerful thriller, True Believer takes a piercing look at justice for all, from all sides of the American legal system.
