In the compelling thriller The Lincoln Lawyer, Matthew McConaughey plays the streetwise LA attorney who meets his match when he's hired to defend manipulative Californian playboy Louis Roulet (Ryan Phillippe). He's charged with the attempted murder of a prostitute but McConaughey - more used to dealing with low-life crimmos - has to raise his game when what appears an open-and-shut case looks like it could trap him. Director Brad Furman fashions a sharp adaptation of Michael Connelly's novel with McConaughey neatly cast as the charismatic lawman who can't quite believe he's being played.
