When a Pulitzer prize winning author of true crimes returns to his hometown in Georgia, it isn't long before he is involved in a forty year old case of a teenage girl who had been murdered. Together with the daughter of the man convicted of the crime, they find themselves caught up in a conspiracy of devastating proportions... but even more, as the story moves on to its terrifying climax, it also reveals something very personal about his own family.

Jackson Kinley wears his watch on on his right hand an writes with his right hand. Very usual. Also in a latter scene with the mother driving, the car passes guard rail the were not used until the lat 70s to early 80s. See more »
When Jackson goes to Dora's and climbs into the well, he is wearing a plaid shirt - next in the house his shirt is a solid color - in the morning, his shirt is back to plaid. This may or may not be due to his shirt getting wet in the well. It's possible he's wearing one of Ray's shirts. See more »
I rented this film without knowing anything about it and not expecting much more than a mediocre mystery. However, it's actually a very well done film, both in terms of story and character development. The story takes awhile to unfold as the first part of the film is focused on building characters and a sense of the town in which they live. This in itself is interesting as it comes across in a natural way and gives the viewer the feeling that these people are real human beings. Then we begin to follow a trail of clues both in the present and through flashbacks to the era of the crime. A mistake and a crime happened a long time ago on an abandoned country road. One man has been executed because of it. Others are forced to hide the truth, either to protect themselves or the people they care about. I can't say too much more without giving away the ending, but I think you'll find yourself pulled deeply into the story just as I did. If you enjoyed "Lone Star" then you'll probably enjoy this film too. Please don't dismiss it because it's a made for TV movie as it's certainly better than many theater films.
