Absence of Malice

Absence of Malice-1981, starring Sally Field, Paul Newman, and Wilford Brimley
He says-  A reporter is duped by a scheming government investigator into printing a story that discredits innocent Newman; while she hides behind the privilege of the press, he determines to get even.  Absorbing drama by former reporter Kurt Luedtke with two charismatic star performances.  Filmed in Miami.  3 stars.

I say--God this was a snoozer.  I really found this to be a movie with no real action and it was just 2 hours of talking.  Paul Newman was good, but I felt like he deserved better material.  And Wilford Brimley didn't even mention diabetes once!  He comes in at the very end to explain everything, which makes his character rather useless.  1 star.
