From Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet comes this intense drama set in early 20th century England. Nigel Hawthorne stars as Arthur Winslow, the proud patriarch of the Winslow family. When his son Ronnie (Guy Edwards) is dismissed from the Naval College at Osbourne for a wrongful accusation of theft, Arthur seeks the aid of attorney Sir Robert Morton (Jeremy Northam) to clear his son of the charges and uphold the family's honor. In the media frenzy that surrounds the legal battle, Arthur's daughter Catherine (Rebecca Pidgeon) loses her engagement to a respected public figure, his own health deteriorates and the family begins to harbor fear and doubt about the case and their future. But as the family comes together to face the crisis, a historical decision is declared to resolve the case.
