Jeremy Irons stars in an Academy Award-winning role with Glenn Close, Christine Baranski and a high-powered supporting cast as Claus von Bülow, an aristocratic, moral reprobate who's guilty of attempted murder but found legally innocent in a stunning Reversal of Fortune. In this shocking, witty true story that reveals life in a wealthy American upperclass that shamelessly feels no guilt over the consequences of its actions, a story that examines a legal system that sets the guilty free, von Bülow injects his wife, Sunny (Close), with an overdose of insulin. She does not die as he planned but remains in a persistent vegetative state. A jury finds von Bülow guilty, but brilliant attorney Alan Dershowitz and his team of bright young law students manage to cast enough doubt on the trial to overturn the conviction--even as they focus only on the academic legal questions and not on the terrible crime that has been committed.
