  •  Times Of India -Reagan Gavin Rasquinha Rating-8
The Judge is a great example of meticulously-crafted character portrayals and a film that carefully builds up each of the main characters over the course of its duration. The passing of Hank's mother opens old wounds in his family. Older brother Glen (D'Onofrio) aims sarcastic, bitter barbs at

  •  Book My Show -Samiya Dinware Rating-6
Strained relationships, family issues and emotional drama – this movie has it all. The story delves into the life of a cocky, high-profile city lawyer, Hank Palmer, who returns home to his estranged family. What ensues thereafter is a predictable family drama, enriched by picturesque
