Storyline

Awaiting execution, Denver Bayliss gains an unlikely friend and confidant in Fred Whitmore, a former cop who is now a prison guard. Whitmore's life is a mess, however: he shuts out his wife and can't relate to his son. As Bayliss' execution draws nearer, Whitmore clashes more and more with Lt. McMannis, his supervisor, over Bayliss' treatment. Bayliss gives Whitmore a new understanding of life by helping him come to terms with a traumatic past, and Whitmore helps Bayliss to make his peace with himself and the world. Written by Jason A. Cormier <wildrose@mindsping.com>

Superb low-key prison movie
6 December 2002 | by (Winchester, England) – See all my reviews

Kiefer Sutherland, star of TV's '24', directs and stars in this superb low-key prison movie.

Forrest Whitaker is the guard who slowly be-friends a prisoner on death row, and who's friendship and understanding of the in-mate causes his private life to slowly suffer.

The performances are all superb, especially from Sutherland, and there is also good support from Clancy Brown, who played the evil prison guard in the legendary 'Shawshank Redemption'. The climatic ending is also well constructed, powerful and tense. This is a lot better than most TV movies out there and deserves a big audience.

8.5 out of 10.
