An Elegant, Brazen, Maliciously Funny Black Comedy." -Tom Carson, L.A. WEEKLY

Did European aristocrat Claus von Bulow (Jeremy Irons) try to murder his wife Sunny (Glenn Close) at their luxurious Newport mansion in 1980? Tabloids of the day had their opinions. "You have one thing in your favor," defense attorney Alan Dershowitz (Ron Silver) told von Bulow. "Everybody hates you."

Based on Dershowitz's book by screenwriter Nicholas Kazan (Fallen, At Close Range) and directed by Barbet Schroeder (Single White Female), Reversal of Fortune is the acclaimed filmization of events that had all America talking. For his precise portrait of icy brittleness, Irons won the Best Actor Academy Award as well as the Los Angeles and National Society of Film Critics Awards. Think you know the truth? Until you watch
