Great film about a very persistent woman who fights for justice to clear her son's name
25 October 2006 | by (Cork, Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is a powerful drama based on real life events. Maggie Stutter is shocked when her teenage son Eric is incriminated for the brutal assault of a neighbour. Even more so when he is actually convicted of the crime. She sets out to clear her son's name with the help of top lawyer Dan Pendleton. Her job as a pediatrician's assistant becomes jeopardised in the ensuing turmoil. It also affects both Maggie's relationship with her long-suffering boyfriend and that of her son with his girlfriend Donna, played by Michelle Williams of Dawson's Creek fame. As the film develops the 'good cop, bad cop' method of investigating the case takes on more sinister proportions. With the District Attourney under pressure to provide a conviction, the victim is persuaded by the police to give eye-witness testimony in an effort to convict Eric. This provides the basis for the prosecution's case and is a shocking example of how power can be abused.
