Warner Brothers / Christine Loss
"The jury has to identify with the defendant. They see you, they see a yard worker; they see me, they see an attorney. I live in town, you live in the hill."
- Lawyer Jake Tyler Brigance (Matthew McConaughey), who is white, tries in A Time to Kill
(1996) to convince a client who is black and charged in two deaths that jurors will identify with him and not judge him by his race.
