‘Presumed Innocent’ Movie Summary

Presumed Innocent tells the story of the murder investigation of assistant district attorney Carolyn Polhemus, played in flash backs by Greta Scacchi. Polhemus is found murdered in her apartment. She has appeared to be tied up, raped, and then bludgeoned to death. The district attorney Raymond Horgan, who is the process of losing an election, puts his best man on the job, Rozat “Rusty” Sabich, played by Han Fucking Solo himself, Harrison Ford.

Rusty doesn’t want the job, and not just because he is the process of looking for a new barber for himself. No, he doesn’t want it because just like every other character in the film, he has slept with the victim previously. However, no one knows that, except for Rusty’s wife. And we are never given the story of how she found that little gem out.

With reluctance, Rusty goes about determining who got the last turn on the town bicycle. They have some good evidence. Polhemus is tied up, so they think it may have been one of the many pervy sex offenders that she prosecuted. They have a beer glass with fingerprints on it. They have dead sperm in her vagina, which in 1990, was pre-DNA so they could only get blood type off it.
