A Time To Kill
A courtroom drama, full of conversation and debate, can achieve gripping effects and touch the heart of the audiences. Each and every character grabs a hold of the law and throttles it. Jake Brigance (Matthew McConaughey) helps Carl Lee Hailey (Samuel L. Jackson) to defend his accusation of murder towards two white guys who had raped and attempted to kill Carl's little daughter Stacey aged 10 at the beginning of the film.

Lots of close-ups in the film effectively used by the Akiva Goldsman, the screenplay person. They are used mostly between conversations and they also show how people react to their debates or conversation. It increases tension and brings the audience closer to the film. The character's suitability of the film, the effectiveness of the camera shots and the organised editing all contribute to the effectiveness of achieving the main idea of the film.
