Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

A high-profile criminal lawyer finds his bid for the governorship in jeopardy when an ambitious rookie journalist begins suspecting him of tampering with evidence in order to secure his many convictions in director Peter Hyams’ remake of the 1956 Fritz Lang classic. Mark Hunter (Michael Douglas) has a reputation for putting criminals behind bars, and with elections approaching he seems a shoo-in for governor. But just how clean is the district attorney’s record when held up to scrutiny? When hungry reporter C.J. Nicholas (Jesse Metcalfe) frames himself as a murder suspect in hopes of catching Hunter in the act, the two fierce rivals become caught up in a treacherous game of cat and mouse. But Assistant DA Ella Crystal (Amber Tamblyn) has no idea about her boyfriend C.J.’s latest assignment, and as the evidence against both men begins to pile up she begins to suspect that she’s in mortal danger. And she’s right. Now, as Ella discovers irrefutable truth of both C.J.’s innocence and her boss’ shady dealings, the fate of two men rests in the hands of one woman whose life could be taken at any second.
