This is the retelling of the real story of a sister who puts herself through law school so she can represent her brother who has been wrongly imprisoned for murder.
Hillary Swank, Sam Rockwell and Minnie Driver take the lead roles in this gritty and sometime compelling movie.
Parts of this film are very well done. There is plenty of backstory and masses and masses ‘one woman struggling against the system’ moments. However, if it wasn’t for the ‘true story’ disclaimer at the start of the film I certainly wouldn’t have seen it through to the end.
Rockwell and Swank are fantastic as always, but this does have the feel of a TV drama rather than movie at times.
