Legal Eagles (1986)



Reviews and Comments

Good but not great mystery thriller starring Robert Redford as an assistant district attorney and Debra Winger as a defense attorney who reluctantly work together on a case involving stolen art and possibly something a little more sinister. There's a lot of twists and surprise revelations, some of which make sense and some of which don't, but the stars hold it together, if precariously. Daryl Hannah is a scene stealer as a loopy performance artist accused of theft. Curiously, her guilt or innocence (of more serious crimes) in the theatrical/video version differs from that of the syndicated broadcast version.
