The Judge

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:30pm

Includes a conversation with actors Robert Downey Jr. and Robert DuvallRobert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall—two of the finest actors of their generations—team up for the first time in this can-you-go-home-again comedy-melodrama from director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) and screenwriters Nick Schenk (Gran Torino) and Bill Dubuque, from a story by Dobkin and Schenk. Downey stars as glib, bullying powerhouse defense attorney Hank, who is pulled back into family dysfunction and small-town Indiana after the death of his mother. He returns to the collateral-damage orbit of his brothers (Vincent D’Onofrio and Jeremy Strong) and his strong-willed dad (Robert Duvall), a judge who rules the burg with a fierce sense of justice and fair play, which often leaves no room for feeling. Hank is trapped in his former home, when a family tragedy forces him to defend his unforgiving father in court. Vera Farmiga is the girl he left behind, and Billy Bob Thornton and Dax Shepard are lawyers who get in Hank’s way.
