The Judge is the first film from Team Downey, the production company founded by longtime Hollywood producer Susan Downey ("Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," "RocknRolla") and her husband, highest-paid actor in the world Robert Downey, Jr. His blockbuster franchise films as the larger-than-life iconic heroes Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes are wildly entertaining, but it is a welcome departure to see him in a straight dramatic role in a movie of great warmth, humor and wisdom.

Downey gives his most complex and layered performance as Hank, an arrogant criminal defense attorney from Chicago who returns home for his mother's funeral and ends up defending his father (Robert Duvall) in a homicide trial.
