In A Time to Kill, way long at 148 minutes, they cram in too much, including Grisham’s polemics about racism, the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan and the moral dilemma of the death penalty.

A skillfully constructed morality play that pushes all the right buttons and arrives at all the right conclusions.
