Jodie Comer stars as Tessa, a brilliant young barrister. From working-class beginnings, Tessa has made her way to the top of her field and has a reputation for being a winner, which she appreciated and has earned. It doesn’t matter the client, Tessa prosecutes, cross-examines and calls into doubt the veracity of the opposing witnesses.
When Tessa finds herself on the opposite side of the bar she has to fight the same system she’s used to her advantage in the past. She’ll have to fight the very system she has exploited where victims are doubted, the patriarchy is strong and where the burden of proof doesn’t necessarily match the reality of the situation. Prima Facie is the 2018 winner of the prestigious Griffin Award.
