Wiki Bio Text
==High Crimes== is a 2002 American thriller film directed by [[Carl Franklin]] and starring [[Ashley Judd]] and [[Morgan Freeman]], reunited from the 1997 film [[Kiss the Girls]]. The screenplay by [[Yuri Zeltser]] and [[Grace Cary Bickley]] is based on [[Joseph Finder]]'s 1998 novel of the same name.
==High Crimes== 2002 Movie - Defense attorney [[Claire Kubik]] ([[Ashley Judd]]) seems to have the perfect life. She has a high profile job at a big firm, a beautiful home outside San Francisco, and a husband, [[Tom]] ([[James Caviezel]] of [[The Thin Red Line]]), who loves her. Claire's biggest problem appears to be that she wants to have a baby, and she's having trouble getting pregnant. But when the police investigate a routine break-in at her home, they uncover the truth about her husband's identity, and her life is thrown into turmoil. Claire finds out that her husband's name is actually [[Ron Chapman]], and that he's an ex-marine accused of murdering seven innocent civilians in El Salvador during a raid in the late '80s. He admits that he was there, and that he changed his identity to escape prosecution for the crimes, but he insists that he's innocent, and that the massacre was committed by another soldier under the orders of a powerful general ([[Bruce Davison]]), who is using Ron as a patsy to cover it up. Claire is eventually convinced that Ron's telling the truth. Faced with defending her husband in an unfamiliar military courtroom, Claire enlists the aid of [[Charles Grimes]] ([[Morgan Freeman]]), an ex-Army judge advocate with an axe to grind. Stonewalled by the military bureaucracy at every turn, they uncover a web of deception and disappearing witnesses, and they soon find their own lives in danger. High Crimes was adapted from [[Joseph Finder]]'s novel by the husband and wife screenwriting team of [[Yuri Zeltser]] and [[Cary Bickley]]. The film was directed by [[Carl Franklin]] ([[One False Move]]), and co-stars [[Amanda Peet]] and [[Adam Scott]].
