Widowed for three years, judge Monica Barrett is surprised to learn that she is on the initial long list of twenty under consideration to fill the current Supreme Court vacancy. Her confidantes in the know believe that although she is not as high profile as some of the other nineteen, she has a good shot of the appointment because she is seen as being fair, knowledgeable and non-partisan, as witnessed by the support she receives from opposition Senator Garland Wolf. But most importantly, she doesn't have any skeletons in her closet, at least to that she will admit or of which people know. While on vacation alone in San Francisco, she meets Irish writer Jack Sullivan, who begins to woo her. Being naturally cautious but a good judge of character, she does go out to dinner and have drinks with him, but she does not divulge her real name or her real job. After their encounter, she learns that Jack is not who he appears on the surface as he begins to stalk her with incriminating evidence ... Written by Huggo

Plausible story of modern politics, well done
3 June 2015 | by morrisonhimselfSee all my reviews

Anne Archer seems a bit too attractive and young for a judge and especially for a Supreme Court nominee, but she pulls it off.

As her daughter, Erin Karpluk doesn't have a lot to do, but she is a very lovely young lady with personality and should go far.

Michael Shanks as the seducer is wonderfully smarmy, and terribly good in this role.

Early dialog is often clever and humorous and pleasant fun to listen to, even though to me all the utter nonsense about government -- disgustingly realistic in this movie -- usually makes me both angry and frustrated.

Politics should not rear its ugly head in a Supreme Court nomination, but -- especially since the naming of Judge Robert Bork, and the astonishingly ugly attacks on him, followed by the even worse and even more vicious attacks on Clarence Thomas -- politics does intrude and we've all seen that one particular party and class of people in government have no limits, no concept of ethics.

This script does a good job of not naming political parties and therefore does not point out one or another as culprits. But anyone at all familiar with recent history should be able to make some comparisons.

Never mind. The story stands solidly on its own merits, and the cast is superb. I recommend "Judicial Intrigue."
