- Reversal of fortune
- Did European aristocrat Claus von Bulow attempt to murder his wife Sunny at their luxurious Newport mansion in 1980? The tabloids of the day certainly had their opinions. "You have one thing in your favor," defense attorney Alan Dershowitz told von Bulow, "Everybody hates you." Reversal of Fortune is the acclaimed movie version of events that had all America talking. Jeremy Irons plays von Bulow in an Academy Award winning performance of icy brittleness that also won a Golden Globe and Los Angeles and National Society of Film CriticsBest Actor Awards. Glen Close is wanly elegant as heiress Sunny. And Ron Silver portrays Harvard law professor Dershowitz, retained by von Bulow to uncover the evidence that will demolish the prosecution's case - and reverse a devastating verdict.
