Nuts ()

directed by
featuring Barbra Streisand, Richard Dreyfuss, Maureen Stapleton, Karl Malden, Eli Wallach

High-priced hooker Claudia Draper (Barbra Streisand) has been arrested for the murder of one of her clients. The attorney engaged by Claudia's parents hopes to cop an insanity plea so that she can avoid a trial and manslaughter conviction. But she refuses this, citing a proviso in New York law that may result in her spending the rest of her life in an institution. Against all odds, struggling lawyer Aaron Levinsky (Richard Dreyfuss) tries to prove that Claudia is not crazy and is capable of standing trial. He certainly has his work cut out for him; from what we've seen in the film thus far, the violently impulsive Claudia is not only "nuts," but certifiably so. Though she has plenty of opportunity in Nuts to give out with her usual bravura Streisandisms, Streisand (who also produced the film and wrote the songs) is surprisingly restrained through most of the proceedings. And then there's that extended-monologue climax. Nuts was adapted by Tom Topor, Darryl Ponicsan, and Alvin Sargent from Topor's stage play. Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis

Challenging movie about hearing the TRUTH even though it may be presented in an offensive manner. Barbra Streisand's portrayal of Claudia is exceptional and Richard Dreyfuss as her attorney is outstanding. He is the perfect actor for this role. A well made captivating heart wrenching story of hidden secrets being exposed and captives being freed.

Nuts was a very good movie; lots of drama. The plot moved along swiftly and I would recommend it as a movie to add to your collection.
