But I think the movie could have been done without it. If the universe is expanding, what is it expanding INTO? Anyway, this, for Coppola, is a pretty straightforward story, neither the grand opera he’s attracted to, nor the more quiet “personal” films that usually come in between. His strengths are his intelligence, his energy and his lack of pride; he is quite happy to chase ambulances and give cops backhanders for information. And Claire Danes’ wife-abusing husband is a stereotype if there ever was one — yet after his murder is discovered and the blinking screaming police cars arrive and she is about to be taken away, the wife-abuser’s family can be heard in the background shouting, “DAMN you, Kelly. And he was convincing. In this case, his client is a young boy, dying of leukemia.
Two lawyers for instance, dashing into a courtroom to try a case, neither of whom has a license to practice law. What is it about that state anyway? While the Deck of the book verges on the grotesque, De Vito makes him less of an oddball and hence more sympathetic. Francis Coppola is a very innovative yet conventional director you could credit him with authorship of several current movie cliches and his storylines develop according to convention. And there were smaller, delicate touches. Sometimes it was situational. He had the same fear in his eyes that we all do, but also that dog-eat-dog determination to prove to the world that he could do the job.
Was it just to give the movie another case so the entire film wasn’t centered on the insurance trial? Overall, a dainmaker every law student and lawyer should see for its humanity; its brilliance; and its judgment on the American legal system. What else would anyone expect with a title like that — “John Gresham’s ‘The Rainmaker'”? I had my doubts about Damon playing a lawyer, but the more I watched, the more I realized that he looked like people I see at work everyday.
Each person added a little more to the movie, and each gave a great performance.
If the universe is expanding, what is it expanding INTO? Virginia Madsen is being interviewed in a motel room by Damon, and she spills the beans on the malignant corporate megagiant that provides the unoriginal heavy.

And the cast was wonderful. He winds up quitting practice. See it if you can. What did you do?

One thing the film does almost rainaker well as the book is send the message sorry Mr Goldwyn that America needs to do something about its medical insurance system, if the present chaotic mess can be so described.
Thus the love affair, which is completely extraneous to the main storyline in the book, is pumped up, and the fascinating battle of wits between the lawyers played down. Rudy sets out to help rainmaked young man and his family, in what turns out to be one of the biggest cases Tennessee has ever seen. And of course DeVito and Damon carried the film. Was it to give Rudy a love interest? Language Set favourite s Login. Danny Glover as the 2nd judge gave a little humor to the movie, but also made you feel good about Rudy’s chances in court.
Of course I seldom watch a movie without reading the book first as that sbtitles me insight into the innuendos presented,and to see how closely the movie follows zubtitles book. I enjoyed the trial scenes and all the grunt work that went behind it being a future lawyer myself I hope. Mickey Rsinmaker is a bit too elegant as Bruiser, Rudy’s erstwhile mentor, who wears cufflinks on a tropical beach?
And Claire Danes is so frangible, so beatable in this movie; even with her leg in a cast and the rest of her limbs and head in bandages, she’s morbidly alluring and radiates a sort of semisexual heat.
I missed the credits when I first saw this so I had no idea who had created it.
The Rainmaker (1956)
There is a voice-over by Matt Damon explaining his background and expectations to us. He was going to play fair, but hew as also going to give Rudy the benefit of the doubt.
He’s from Orange, New Jersey. I was surprised at an undercurrent of humor. Although the script tones down his role, John Voight is nastily urbane as superlawyer Drummond.
Anyway, this, for Coppola, is a pretty straightforward story, neither the grand opera he’s attracted to, nor the more quiet “personal” films that usually come in between. Law School graduate who can’t seem to find a job anywhere, until he meets “Bruiser” Stone Mickey Rourke. The Rainmaker was more about the performances than the story.
Readers of John Grisham’s book will find this film rather less of a thriller and more of a courtroom drama, albeit with a curious flat feel to it. I feel it gave the movie some heart, and showed that Rudy would fight for what he believed in, both in court and in life. There are several unexpected small parts taken by well-known actors. Francis Coppola is a very innovative yet conventional director you could credit him with authorship of several current movie cliches and his storylines develop according to convention.
Coppola and his team show us Rudy Baylor’s rite de passage as an attorney. And the performances won me over. Francis Ford Coppola Director: What is it about that state anyway? While the Deck of the book verges on the grotesque, De Vito makes him less of an oddball and hence more sympathetic. And he was convincing. This is probably Copola’s last great film.
Invigorated by its talented cast and Francis Ford Coppola’s strong direction, The Rainmaker is a satisfying legal drama — and arguably the best of Hollywood’s many John Grisham adaptations. Half-way through I began to think, this director, whoever he is, is pretty deft.
