"Witty, affectionate and intelligent entertainment...sterling performances." -Hollywood Reporter

Timothy Bottoms stars in this powerful, moving story of a first-year Harvard Law School student who comes to terms with his dreams in America's most competitive school.

Serious and hard-working, Hard (Bottoms) finds he must survive much more than the pressures, all-night cramming and insecurities he expected. He becomes the fearful adversary of Knightsfield, the school's most imperious, witheringly sarcastic yet brilliant professor (John Houseman in an Oscar winning performance). Terrorizing some, inspiring others, the professor easily separates the men from the boys by the time the term is over. Hart's personal relationship with Knightsfield grows more complex when he discovers the girl he's fallen in love with is the professor's daughter (Lindsay Wagner).

Edward Herrmann and James Naughton are fellow students in James Bridges' acclaimed film based on the novel by John Jay Osborn, Jr.
