A High powered NY litigator, hired to defend a murderer who avenged his young son's death, struggles with his own desires for success versus the moral wishes of his client to choose the path of truth. Written by
The Confession is a moving film about an attorney's struggle to regain his soul. That sounds awfully high-flown, but the screenwriter and the filmmakers handle it with grace and economy. Alec Baldwin and Amy Irving make the material emotional without being melodramatic. There's also a nice legal mystery to go along with the characters' moral journeys.
