THE FIRM (1993)

Sydney Pollack directs this gripping adaptation of John Grisham's thriller. Harvard Law School graduate Mitch McDeere (Tom Cruise) turns down offers from the nation's top law firms, and moves cross country with his wife Abby (Jeanne Tripplehorn) to accept an extraordinarily lucrative offer from a small, mysterious firm in Memphis. As they settle into their new lives on the east bank of the Mississippi River, Mitch and Abby gradually come to the realization that there is something dark and menacing lurking behind all those bright, syrupy Southern smiles.

Featuring an extraordinary ensemble cast, including Gene Hackman, Holly Hunter, Ed Harris, Hal Holbrook, Wilford Brimley, David Strathairn, Gary Busey and Paul Sorvino.

Jazz score by Dave Grusin.

Mitch [to FBI Agent Tarrance]: You want to know something funny? You actually made me think about the law. I managed to go through three years of law school without doing that.

Ray: I love your crooked little mouth.

Tammy: Well, it's not my best feature.

Ray: Wow. What is?

Sonny: So the worst is, I pay my taxes much, much later?

Mitch: No. The worst thing is, next year they close the loophole, and if you haven't grabbed this proposal, you'll feel like you were fucked with a dick big enough for an elephant to feel it.

Sonny [Pause/Grimace]: You know that for a fact?

    I had a nice evening watching this film with the group. I have a copy of the book at home & could not wait to read it again. Right now I am on page 284 out of 501 pages. The film adaptation is good, although a little long. Wayne, thank you again for welcoming us into your home. You are always such a kind host, and you screen such an interesting variety of films.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
