19 January 1999 | by (Amherst, MA) – See all my reviews

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.
