Read my spoiler-free movie review of Defending Jacob (2020).
Based on the best selling book by William Landay, Defending Jacob is a new mystery / thriller starring Chris Evans, Michelle Dockery, Jaeden Martell and Betty Gabriel.
This is the story of Andy (Evans) and Laurie Barber (Dockery), whose fourteen year-old son (Martell) has been accused of murdering his friend and classmate.
Based on this trailer, Jacob seems guilty. Assuming he’s innocent, how awful would it be if Evans’s character ends up having to go to jail? Looks like a very promising mystery to me.
Sakina Jaffrey, Cherry Jones, Bradley Ryan Knispel, Pablo Schreiber, Jordan Alexa Davis, Daniel Henshall, Ben Taylor, Ted Arcidi, Megan Byrne, Tamara Hickey and Poorna Jagannathan also star.
Defending Jacob Release Dates: April 24th, 2020 (US), Apple TV+
Happy Film Loving
