Brilliant Beyond Reasonable Doubt
13 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

This film was recently re-shown on TV; its'interesting that by just looking at the clothes and hairstyles a viewer can get a reasonable guesstimate of the date the film was made....I was proud to discover my guess of 1980 was not far off the mark!! However I digress....this is an excellent film with a brilliant performance by the lead actor....this movie attempts to portray the effect on a person and his family when accused of a hideous crime and how the media,the public and his work colleagues and neighbours react to it. It is also an inspirational film and a lesson for many on the "victims" response to such a serious 'accusation'.... From start to finish this film seems to be wholly realistic and credible...the writer/director/producers ought to be congratulated....those who make films nowadays ought to learn that it is possible to make a compelling drama based on actuality without resorting to ludicrous unrealistic plots....
