This week's Senior Center Movie Matinee is The Rainmaker.
Broke and inexperienced Memphis lawschool graduate Rudy Baylor is ready to take any job he can find. Signing on with slimy attorney, Bruiser Stone, he learns ambulance-chasing tactics from Bruiser's leg man Deck Schifflet. Baylor also has his own clients; friendly Miss Birdie, who has a large estate to dispose of, and desperate Dot Black, whose son Donnie Ray has terminal leukemia.
Medical intervention could have spared his life, but the Great Benefit Insurance Company denied coverage, preventing Donnie Ray from getting a lifesaving bone marrow transplant. Deck and Rudy split from Bruiser to start their small firm.
When they take on the Blacks' case, they go up against the insurance company's high-priced law firm and are continually thwarted by slick lawyer Leo F. Drummond.
Starring Matt Damon, Clare Daines and Danny DeVito.
