Beyond A Reasonable Doubt DVD
Beyond a Reasonable Doubt tells the story of C.J. Nicholas, an ambitious young journalist. (Jesse Metcalfe) who investigates a corrupt district attorney by setting himself up as a murder suspect, only for the DA (Michael Douglas) to uncover the plot and incriminate the scribe. A present-day remake of the Fritz Lang 1956 RKO classic, the film updates the dark and ominous film noir genre by making use of plot twists that will keep audiences guessing until the end. A news reporter wanting to prove the insufficiency of circumstantial evidence to expose a corrupt DA with an unbelievable track record takes matters into his own hands by setting himself up to be convicted of a murder. Along for the ride is C.J's sidekick (Joel David Moore) who documents their plan and is the only one who holds the key to his innocence. Caught in between C.J's plan and DA Mark Hunters ambition is the young assistant DA, Ella (Amber Tamblyn). As the two develop a romance matters are complicated as C.J's plot unfolds trapping Ella in the middle. Oblivious to C.J's plan she goes against her boss to uncover evidence to prove his innocence. Consistent to the themes of film noir the hero's fate comes into jeopardy. With the horror of an innocent man being imprisoned for life only to give a corrupt DA determined to use his success to get to the mayor's office, one more victory...
