a thoughtful drama
20 October 2001 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The Keeper is a tense drama about a corrections officer who decides to bail out a Haitian immigrant he feels has been wrongfully accused of rape. The film takes a few turns after that, but I wont give the story away. Regina Taylor, a very underrated actress, gives a great performance. Giancarlo Esposito is incredible as the man who tries to rise above his station in life and do good and then comes apart. There's also a lot of interesting stuff in the film about African-American class issues.
