Since this movie has a very good reputation, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I wasn't disappointed.

View all Witness for the Prosecution reviews
When Leonard Vole is arrested for the sensational murder of a rich, middle-aged widow, the famous Sir Wilfrid Robarts agrees to appear on his behalf. Sir Wilfrid, recovering from a near-fatal heart attack, is *supposed* to be on a diet of bland, civil suits. But the lure of the criminal courts is too much for him, especially when the case is so difficult: Vole's only alibi witness is his wife, the calm and coldly calculating Christine Vole. Sir Wilfrid's task becomes even more impossible when Christine agrees to be a witness not for the defence but for the prosecution.

Dream Dictionary (878 music items)

"Prosecuting A dream of prosecuting someone is an integration dream reflecting your desire to prove another's guilt to exalt your own position. The qualities you are "prosecuting," which you find so offensive, are disowned aspects of yourself. "
