Hoffman plays Wendell Rohr, a lawyer working a pro bono case, in this legal thriller directed by Gary Fleder from the novel by John Grisham. Rohr takes a gun manufacturer to court after his client’s husband is murdered by a man using one of their guns. Co-starring John Cusack, Rachel Weisz and Gene Hackman. On his character:

I didn’t think of him as honest or dishonest. I thought of him as naive because something tells me he’s playing like the guy who doesn’t believe that technology has even happened and all you need is your own sense.
