Screen legends Jack Lemmon (The Apartment) and George C. Scott (Hardcore) electrify the screen in this stunning remake of the most dazzling courtroom drama of all time. When a courageous schoolteacher dares to introduce his students to Darwin’s theory of evolution, his small Bible Belt town won’t stand for it. Fearing that this “blasphemy” will poison the minds of their children, the devout townspeople lock the teacher behind bars. Enter Henry Drummond (Lemmon) and Matthew Harrison Brady (Scott), two of the country’s most influential attorneys. Like crusaders on a mission, the two passionate and eloquent old enemies set into motion a trial that pits religion against science. While Drummond battles for the free rights of the modern American mind, Brady, with the support of the livid local spectators who thirst for conviction, roars objections, using God’s words as his ammunition. But when the dust settles, the verdict rattles more than just this small, religious town—it shocks America! Directed by Daniel Petrie (A Raisin in the Sun) and featuring Lane Smith (Blue Collar), Tom Everett Scott (That Thing You Do!), Kathryn Morris (TV’s Cold Case), John Cullum (1776), Piper Laurie (Carrie) and Beau Bridges (The Landlord), Inherit the Wind depicts the famous Scopes Monkey Trial with clarity and power.
