2) Ana Wagener as Elvira. Hiding in plain sight throughout the movie.
3) It’s a courtroom-drama enacted completely outside the courtroom with shades of Rashomon effect.
4) Mediocre first-half but exceptional second-half with the story unfolding with multiple plot twists.

QUOTE –
In my 30-year career, I’ve met two types of clients. Those who accept their situation and cooperate, even if it means going where they don’t want to go, and those that think they’re smarter than I am and want me to get them off without getting dirty. You’re the second type. But let me be clear on this. There’ll be no salvation without suffering, and you’re not smarter than I am.
