I fell asleep with the t.v. on and woke up to find this film. That was the end of the night. I was riveted to the tube. The performances were flawless and so real that I entered into the film and was right there with all of them. Each character was moving and understandable. You have met all of them in your lifetime. It was so moving. The tears flowed and I was taken on a journey into his life. It didn't matter that we did not see what transpired to bring him into prison. You had to believe in him and believe in his innocence to really feel where he was at. The brother summed up what the journey was all about when he spoke at the funeral. It just verbalized what I saw happening and that the prison of his anger was where the real bars existed and that had to be removed by him and only him to allow freedom. What superb metaphor! And we all can relate. I truly would see the movie again and again and am seeking a copy to keep. It is a masterpiece in a celluloid world where few exist.
