Review: Damages

In Damages, Glenn Close is one tough lawyer that doesn't shy away from manipulation and is truly unscrupulous but also competent and well known for her qualities. Her firm, Hewes and Associates is set to bringing down a big businessman named Arthur Frobisher, which fooled his employees that everything is going well for their company but then at the right time discreetly pulled his money before the actions plummeted and everyone but him went broke.

The story is incredibly confusing, involving lawyers and all kinds of other individuals, and pre-trial negotiations are so tight that you simply can not guess what will happen. Unlike other series of this kind, Damages follows same story on all seasons, and not separate stories in each episode. In fact, this would be impossible because the threads of the story are so entangled that one episode couldn't shed any light on it.

There are other lawyers in her team, Ellen Parsons and Tom Shayes, but it is clear that their roles are secondary to the one Glenn Close brilliantly pulls. I think this is one of her best roles and she plays lawyer Patty Hewes brilliantly. Ellen is a fresh out of Law School lawyer that gets heavily involved in the company and even puts her family second to this job.

Verdict:

If you want a series to keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time, then go with Damages because it delivers excellent performances and a brilliant lawyer mystery script to keep you thrilled. Damages is perfect exercise for your brain and a true delight due to the well picked cast.
