Find Me Guilty is a 2006 movie directed by Sidney Lumet and starring Vin Diesel, Peter Dinklage, and Ron Silver. The film is based on the true story of the longest Mafia trial in United States history, which took place in the mid-1980s. Vin Diesel plays Giacomo "Jackie Dee" DiNorscio, a low-level member of the Lucchese crime family who is arrested along with dozens of other members of the organization. When the trial begins, Jackie Dee decides to represent himself instead of trusting his fate to a hired lawyer.

The film is primarily a courtroom drama, as Jackie Dee defends himself against a laundry list of charges, including extortion, loan sharking, and murder. The trial lasts for months, and Jackie Dee's unorthodox approach and larger-than-life personality quickly make him a media sensation.

Despite the severity of the charges against him, Jackie Dee maintains his innocence and is determined to prove it in court. The film portrays him as a likable, funny character who is always quick with a joke or a wisecrack. At times, the film almost plays like a comedy, with Jackie Dee's antics providing moments of levity amidst the seriousness of the trial.

In addition to the courtroom drama, the movie also explores Jackie Dee's personal life. He has a strained relationship with his ex-wife, as well as a new girlfriend who stands by him throughout the trial. He also has a young daughter who he desperately wants to protect from the harsh realities of his lifestyle.

Peter Dinklage plays Ben Klandis, one of Jackie Dee's defense attorneys. Klandis is a straight-laced lawyer who is initially hesitant to work with Jackie Dee, but he gradually comes to appreciate his client's charisma and loyalty. Ron Silver plays Judge Sidney Finestein, the no-nonsense judge who presides over the trial.

The film does an excellent job of portraying the intricacies of a long, complicated trial, and the cast is uniformly strong. Vin Diesel is particularly impressive in the lead role, showing range and depth that few would have expected from the star of action blockbusters like The Fast and the Furious.

Overall, Find Me Guilty is a compelling and entertaining movie that offers a unique perspective on the Mafia and the American legal system. It avoids cliches and stereotypes, instead presenting complex characters and situations that challenge the viewer's assumptions about these topics. Highly recommended for fans of crime dramas and courtroom thrillers.

Find Me Guilty is a 2006 comedy with a runtime of 2 hours and 5 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.0 and a MetaScore of 65.
