"The Lincoln Lawyer" stars the handsome and charming, Matthew McConaughey, as a tough criminal defense attorney. At first, I thought the film was set in the U.S. city of Lincoln, Nebraska, due to the title, but it was not so. The film apparently got its name from the main character, attorney, Mickey Haller, being driven around all day, by a round the way tough guy in a Lincoln car. The Lincoln serves as his office, as he has no fixed business address, well, other than his secondary one, a home office (my favorite kind).  

Haller is sought out by a seemingly normal client, who claims he has been wrongly accused of a terrible murder, but as the film progresses, it is revealed, he is as a phrase I read recently, "Nuttier than squirrel doodoo." The film has many twists that are somewhat surprising.
