Overview

In this hit thriller, a prosecuting attorney-turned-defense lawyer falls in love with a rich, charming client who's been accused of murdering his wife and her maid with a hunting knife. When an unknown assailant gruesomely slays San Francisco newspaper heiress Paige Forrester Maria Mayenzet, her husband and business partner, Jack Forrester Jeff Bridges, turns to corporate attorney Teddy Barnes Glenn Close for counsel. Teddy, who quit her job with the district attorney's office four years earlier over an ethical dilemma, has reservations about returning to criminal work; nevertheless, she accepts the assignment, convinced of Jack's innocence and eager to face off in court against her old boss, DA Thomas Krasny Peter Coyote, who's about run for attorney general. With the help of investigator Sam Ransom Robert Loggia, the recently divorced Teddy builds a strong defense for her client, though the work -- and her incipient romance with Jack -- cause strain in her relationship with her children. When Jack's innocence and his romantic intentions come into question, Teddy feels her life slipping back into a moral quagmire until a series of courtroom denouements set the stage for even bigger surprises. Big-name screenwriter Joe Eszterhas' follow-up to Flashdance, Jagged Edge was directed by Richard Marquand, who had previously lensed Return of the Jedi. Parts of Jagged Edge were shot on-location in San Francisco, whose City Hall provides the film's courtroom exteriors.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Although its film noir plot turns prove somewhat unwieldy and its courtroom dramatics seem more than a little familiar, this early Joe Eszterhas effort works because of its well-drawn female protagonist, brought convincingly to life by the young Glenn Close. As principled former prosecutor Teddy Barnes, Close manages to embody her character's tangled professional, domestic, and romantic conflicts with the intelligence and warmth she brings to all but her most villainous roles. As for her co-stars, Jeff Bridges successfully treads the line between unctuous and appealing in his deliberately enigmatic role, while Peter Coyote plays the manipulative, amoral district attorney with convincing slickness. Robert Loggia gets stuck with a stock gumshoe character, but he has fun with it, as do the performers portraying the parade of low-lives and society types who grace the witness box. Some nice San Francisco scenery characterizes Matthew Leonetti's cinematography, while Richard Marquand's direction remains effective and unobtrusive. In short, Jagged Edge is a slick Hollywood product, its leading lady elevating what would otherwise be a standard-issue suspense exercise.
