A Few Good Men Script Summary

In this dramatic courtroom thriller, LT Daniel Kaffee, a Navy lawyer who has never seen the inside of the courtroom, defends two stubborn Marines who have been accused of murdering a colleague. Kaffee is known as being lazy and had arranged for a plea bargain. Downey’s Aunt Ginny appoints Cmdr. Galloway to represent him. Also on the legal staff is LTJG Sam Weinberg. The team rounds up many facts and Kaffee is discovering that he is really cut out for trial work. The defense is originally based upon the fact that PFC Santiago, the victim, was given a “CODE RED”. Santiago was basically a screw-up. At Gitmo, screw-ups aren’t tolerated. Especially by Col. Nathan Jessup. In Cuba, Jessup and two senior officers try to give all the help they can, but Kaffee knows something’s fishy. In the conclusion of the film, the fireworks are set off by a confrontation between Jessup and Kaffee.

Discussion About A Few Good Men

  1. Barbara

    The motion picture “A Few Good Men,” starring A list talent : Jack Nichols Demi Moore, and Tom Cruise. I found the movie to be contradictive in a good way. To begin with, Mr. Nichols and Mr. Cruise had to experiment with the behaviors in groups. Normally, the group leader finds the most loyal dictator to break the laws for the entire group. But, in reality, the leader’s desire is to move up hire in status. Mean-while, the followers pay more than money. The film provides the answer for hate crimes and racism both are unacceptable, and the culprit does get caught. The horrific ending of the story is the murderer does not understand and is not aware reality–consumed to get along well with others. There were so many topics to pick from.
