In Just Cause Sean Connery is Harvard law professor Paul Armstrong who used to be an attorney years ago. He is married to a quite young wife, who is a practicing attorney at law. They have a daughter – Kate which they adore. All in all, their lives are just perfect.Until that letter comes….A black man has been arrested and sentenced to death. Tanny Brown – his name – claims to be innocent and asks Paul for legal represantation. He hopes that Paul will prove his innocence. So, Paul travels to the Everglades, hoping to be able to help Tanny.

It seems that the police officer who first handled the case was unjust, and may even be a rascist. Tanny’s story proves that, as he’s telling about terrible mistreatment by the police station, and especially by the officer in charge. More than ever, Paul wants to help the man. But he also gets to know the stories from the police officers.

It is a difficult situation for Paul, the professor who is accused of having lost touch with real life and thinking everything was as easy as at law school. And he is not part of the Southern society, so his questions are not well received. And it is known that Paul is against discrimination of black people. Is Tanny exploiting this or is he really innocent?

Scarlett Johansson’s Role

Scarlett Johansson is Kate Armstrong, Sean Connery’s daughter. Even though it is just a child role and the character isn’t given much personality, it is already a bigger role than the one in North. Scarlett has to be happy in one scene, she’s having a party and is then saying hello to her dad, glad he is home again. And in another scene, where she and her mother have been kidnapped, she has to be afraid. So, Scarlett really had to act – not just be a nameless child.

Quotes: Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett on Laurence Fishburne “I remember being on a plane with Laurence when I was nine years old and he asked me, ‘Scarlett, do you want to be an actress or do you want to be a star?’ And I was like, ‘I want to be both.’ He said, ‘Well, that’s something you’re going to have to decide when you get older.’ It was good advice because it still keeps my head straight when I think about that. I’m in this to build a career.”
