    Did European aristocrat Claus von Bulow (Jeremy Irons) try to murder his wife Sunny (Glenn Close) at their luxurious Newport mansion in 1980? Tabloids of the day had their opinions. "You have one thing in your favour," defence attorney Alan Dershowitz (Ron Silver) told von Bulow. "Everybody hates you." Based on Dershowitz`s book, written for the screen by Nicholas Kazan, and directed by Barbet Schroder, Reversal of Fortune is the acclaimed filmisation of events that has all America talking. For his precise portrait of icy brittleness, Irons won the Best Actor Academy Award (1990) as well as the Los Angeles and National Society of Film Critics Awards. Think you know the truth? Until you watch... you have no idea.
