I find that movies don't tend to stay in the theatre too long these days so I had to go see The Lincoln Lawyer this afternoon before it disappeared. Anyway, Matthew McConaughey played the unconventional defense lawyer, Mick Haller, who works out of his Lincoln. His clients are very interesting and if they don't pay, he doesn't play. So when a wealthy Realtor, Louis Roulet, played by Ryan Phillippe is accused of raping a prostitute, Haller is asked to defend him. This case becomes even more complicated when Haller and his investigator, Frank Levin, played by William H. Macy finds evidence that Roulet may be linked to one of Haller's old case.
Overall, it was a well casted ensemble including ex-wife, Maggie McPherson, played by Maria Tomei (it was good to see her), John Leguizamo, Michael Peña, Shea Whigham (as the snitch was too funny), and others. Good story with a few twists and turns - I loved it!
