Most of the supporting roles were quite good. I especially liked the casting of Tyler Perry as the celebrity defense attorney. The movie suggests that everything in our modern world -- from the news to the law to the identity of your spouse -- is one big show.
There are plenty of films out there that make us hopeful about life and living. Film noir is a guilty pleasure where we witness the denizens of society's bottom rungs stamping on each other's feet for a higher, safer position.
