Hollywood Hits Home
29 November 2006 | by (Syracuse, NY United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is based on actual events that occurred in my home town. While I wasn't old enough to have experienced them first hand, I was told of them by my professor in college, who had first hand experience himself. The movie was definitely accurate...right down to the characters' themselves (changed names of course). It left me pondering my own ethical behavior, all the while haunting me with gut wrenching question of what I would have done in the same situation. It was nice to see that Hollywood didn't massacre this "hometown" story. Definitely a movie for individuals of "higher (critical) thinking" and those who enjoy true to life movies.
