I am so glad that I stumbled upon "First Time Felon" ... it is wonderful! Based solely on the title, I probably would have passed it by, assuming it wouldn't be "my kind of movie". But from the very beginning, I was totally drawn into this factual drama and thoroughly enjoyed the entire film. It's a good, solid story, enhanced by superb acting and excellent direction. I highly recommend it for anyone!
