From Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures comes The Judge, which pairs two-time Oscar nominee Robert Downey, Jr., (Chaplin, Tropic Thunder) and Oscar-winner Robert Duvall (Tender Mercies), starring together for the first time on the big screen. The film also stars Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, MVFF 2009) and Oscar-winner Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade), and is directed by David Dobkin. In The Judge, Downey stars as big-city defense attorney Hank Palmer, who returns to his childhood home where his estranged father, the town judge (Duvall), is suspected of murder. He sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before.
