Primal Fear

"Sooner or later, a man who wears two faces forgets which one is real."

An arrogant, high-powered attorney takes on the case of a poor altar boy found running away from the scene of the grisly murder of the bishop who has taken him in. The case gets a lot more complex when the accused reveals that there may or may not have been a 3rd person in the room. The intensity builds when a surprise twist alters everyone's perception of the crime and what happens next...

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): At the Catholic Charities dinner, the Archbishop is addressed as "Your Excellency." Assuming he was a Cardinal (since he was wearing red, not purple) he should have been addressed as "You Eminence."
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In one of the first scenes in Martin Vail's office, he uses the word "illegibly" instead of the correct word "allegedly."
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Martin's cut over his right eyebrow appears and disappears.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): The cover of the USA Today Andre Braugher's character is reading when he's first introduced consists mostly of a big three-line headline and a the lengthy text of a story. No newspaper in 1996 would run a cover without a large photo or graphic high on the page, especially not USA Today.
