Further the movie in John Milton&#39s trenchant speech questions the very notion of righteousness in the post-modern world. Milton&#39s speech rips apart the whole discourse of religion when he presents the inherent contradiction of it. Kevin&#39s dilemma reflects the modern man who accuses the circumstances for being what he is,the culture dominated by making money &#39which build egos of the size of cathedral&#39, the question is can one really call what one does &#39freely-willed&#39?. The movie deals with these &#39Hamltian questions&#39 in a lawyer&#39s mind.
