Anyone who goes to see “The Judge” expecting a murder mystery or courtroom drama will get something much different than they expect — thankfully.

With a well-assembled cast led by Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall, “The Judge” delivers a satisfying, touching and often cringe-worthy glimpse inside a family and its multi-layered struggles. Director David Dobkin (“Wedding Crashers”) takes the helm at this drama with all the ease of main character Hank Palmer’s young daughter when she gets behind the wheel of his car.
