A murder of crows 1998 trailer
A Murder of Crows is a 1999 thriller film directed by Rowdy Herrington and starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Tom Berenger.
Lawson Russell (Gooding) is a Louisiana-based criminal defense lawyer who gets disbarred for committing a mistrial. After that, he retires to Key West and decides to write a book about his experience. He suffers from perpetual writer's block while working on his book and befriends an old man who asks him to read his manuscript. When the old man unexpectedly dies soon afterwards, Russell decides to pass the book off as his, and it ends up becoming a huge success. Russell is later arrested for the real murders of five lawyers just as they happened in "his" book. He then finds himself forced to prove his innocence.
