Courtroom drama that's not...

"A courtroom drama that doesn't unfold in the courtroom at all. It is told through a story line with two different views on what happened that fateful night. It'll make you wonder what really took place.
Fine, fine performance by Annette Bening. Has she ever made a bad movie?Ben Kingsley usually always does well in his roles too (see the powerful movie 'House of Sand and Fog' or 'Death and the Maiden').
A well recommended movie."

"I watch this movie everytime it comes on HBO--and everytime I am beside myself laughing. Annette Bening does a brilliant job of portraying one woman's slow spiral out of control, having been driven to the breaking point over her love for the Scarsdale Diet doctor. Her descent into complete madness is remarkably eerie and believable. Her irrational comments are side-splittingly funny.
Adding to this wonderful character study is the satiric tone of the entire film and the fake-documentary style that adds to the (true) story's credibility.
This is worth watching many times over."
