Overview

British filmmaker Peter Yates directs Suspect, a suspenseful courtroom drama set in Washington, D.C. After a Supreme Court justice commits suicide and a Justice Department secretary is found dead, a deaf-mute homeless veteran, Carl Wayne Anderson (Liam Neeson), is the suspected killer. Lonely yet dedicated public defender Kathleen Riley (Cher) is assigned to the case to represent Anderson. Suave lobbyist Eddie Sanger (Dennis Quaid) is on the jury, but he starts his own investigation by finding clues that prove Anderson's innocence. He shares his information with Kathleen, even though they could get arrested for talking about the case. Eventually, they develop a romance and reveal a conspiracy that leads to a twist ending. The mysterious conclusion involves a final courtroom scene presided over by Judge Matthew Helms (played by character actor John Mahoney, who would go on to co-star on the sitcom Frasier).

my dad recommended me this film, since i like cher and liam neeson. this is the story of a lawyer a complicated case and starting a relationship with a juror including two people dead. the suspense was good and its where you have to listen to what the characters are saying and what cher's character is asking to the suspect. the scenes between cher and neeson were one of my favorite parts of the movie and he himself did a great job with his character. watch the whole movie and if this was your first time watching then wait for the ending, i know i was. i thought the killer was one of two people but never thought of the person that was revealed in the end. goes to show that's a good mystery film.

Although Cher got the Oscar for Moonstruck, this is her best work. It is also fun to see Dennis Quaid younger. The plot is very good, and the end is a complete surprise--it is not the 'suspect' you think!
