Bondi Legal

A comedy thriller described as Erin Brockovich meets the Castle, based on a true story.

Hapless anxiety prone lawyer Brad Pitt ( no relation )  turns up to fill in for the day for a lawyer on holiday and is thrust unprepared into a complex case where a mother is suing a chemical giant because her daughter's show pony was ravaged by the company's cleaning product.

Facing a lawyer who resembles a rottweiler and a scowling magistrate, Brad Pitt has to overcome the odds including a strange habit of passing out and waking  up thinking he is a gorilla.

What follows is a fish out of water farce which shows it is never too late to realise your potential.
