Lt. Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise) is a military lawyer defending two U.S. Marines charged with killing a fellow Marine at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba. Although Kaffee is known for seeking plea bargains, a fellow lawyer, Lt. Cdr. JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore), convinces him that the accused marines were most likely carrying out an order from a commanding officer. Kaffee takes a risk by calling Col. Nathan R. Jessep (Jack Nicholson) to the stand in an effort to uncover the conspiracy.

This critically acclaimed courtroom drama by Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin was first a play before being a film and the plot is based on a true “Code Red” episode at Guantanamo Bay. The film earned 4 Oscar nominations and 5 Golden Globe Awards, including best picture and supporting actor for Nicholson. It gross over $236 million at the box office. The final courtroom confrontation 'You can't handle the truth' is a mythic film scene.
