The Burial is a light-hearted courtroom drama that ends up being more enjoyable than not thanks to one engaging performance and a strong moral center. The subject of death and funeral arrangements is never a comfortable one, but it’s an unfortunate side to life that we often end up paying a good deal for when it’s all said and done. Comfort and peace of mind are huge for families, which makes this “based on a true story” film intriguing and frustrating the more we learn about the funeral and casket business. While this film focuses mostly on contract law, there are lots of real-world emotional situations which work their way into the narrative and even some parallels to the O.J. Simpson trial that was occurring at the same time.
