The Rainmaker 1997

Francis Ford Coppola’s contribution to the bandwagon of John Grisham legal adaptations is probably the best of the bunch. Matt Damon shoulders the weight of the film as Rudy Baylor, a young lawyer teamed with a cynical paralegal (Danny De Vito) as he attempt to win a lawsuit against a powerful insurance company, with the money for a young boy’s bone-narrow transplant at stake. Coppola gets strong support from Mickey Rourke, Roy Scheider and Jon Voight, and even with the romance with Clare Danes is a little rusty, The Rainmaker is considerably smarter entertainment that the usual legalese potboiler.
