Saturday Afternoon at the Movies – John Grisham’s The Rainmaker (1997)

Saturday, September 26, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Members & guests–free with Amazon Prime and Tubi. To RSVP, please scroll down. Registered attendees will then receive an email the day before the discussion with a link to join via Zoom.

Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! Invigorated by its talented cast and Francis Ford Coppola’s strong direction, The Rainmaker is a satisfying legal drama — and arguably the best of Hollywood’s many John Grisham adaptations. Struggling new attorney Rudy Baylor (Matt Damon) resorts to working for a shady lawyer (Mickey Rourke), where he meets paralegal Deck Shifflet (Danny DeVito). When the insurance company of Dot Black (Mary Kay Place) refuses her dying son coverage, Baylor and Shifflet team up to fight the corrupt corporation, taking on its callous lawyer (Jon Voight). Meanwhile, Baylor becomes involved with Kelly Riker (Claire Danes), an abused wife, whose husband complicates matters when he confronts Baylor. Join a group discussion led by Village member Mel Washburn via Zoom at 3:00 PM
