This raucous drama tells the true story of New Zealand’s most controversial lawyer, Mike Bungay (Mark Mitchinson, The Hobbit films, Spartacus). After overcoming a miserable upbringing, Bungay decides to go to law school based on the results of a coin toss. In a high-profile career that begins in the 1960s and spans decades, he makes enemies of fellow lawyers and clients alike with his unconventional methods and his penchant for fast cars, married women, and whisky. Successfully defending alleged murderers, spies, and gang members with his own brand of justice earns him notoriety—and the occasional slap in the face. But no matter how many legal victories he wins, Bungay can’t quit his self-destructive habits and escape his own inner demons. Filled with humor, wit, and moral dilemmas, Dear Murderer offers a fascinating look at a provocative character and explores the complex nature of the law.
