Picks and Pans Review: Broken Trust

TNT (Sun., Aug. 6, 8 p.m.)


There's no shortage of lawyers on television these days, but this made-for-TV movie based on the William P. Wood novel Court of Honor is a cut above the rest. Tom Selleck stars as a goody two-briefs Seattle judge who is coerced into acting as an informant for two federal investigators (William Atherton and Elizabeth Mc-Govern) probing judicial corruption. The movie's noirish visual style and its refusal to find easy answers to ethical questions make Broken Trust seem more thoughtful and innovative than the usual courtroom thriller.
