Trial by Jury | 1994 | R | - 5.6.6

A juror (Joanne Whalley-Kilmer) must choose between her own safety and justice when she is told to acquit a mobster (Armand Assante) during his trial.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Pictures of nude bodies are briefly shown to jurors (it is difficult to see what is in the photos). A man tries to watch a woman dress and her bare shoulders are seen; he then nearly rips her robe from her and stares at her exposed chest. A woman is shown naked in the shower (we see her back and legs) and it is implied that she was raped. There is an extended, passionate kissing scene. A man makes overtures to another man in a prison restroom and photos of the act are shown briefly.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Many references are made to a man's murderous past. A man hits several people and threatens others. A woman is abducted and thrown around a bit; she and a young boy are threatened. A woman is shown with a bloody face, and she is then shot. Several people are shot and killed with varying amounts of blood. A man is stabbed in the neck with an ice pick (some blood is shown). Gory photos of murder victims are shown.

LANGUAGE 6 - About 10 F-words, about 5 scatological references, some mild profanities, and some sexual references.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
