Powerful in visits
24 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Visit tells the story of a inmate convicted of rape who is looking to a parole after 5 years in prison. In this time period, we watch as he gets visits from his brother, mother, father and an old friend. These visits and his parole board meeting are the strongest parts of the movie filled with good acting (in particular from Harper and Williams), but the film gets lowered due to un-needed dramatic cut-away edits and weird scenes outside of the prison which shouldn't be. Watchable for the redemption scenes, but has it's share of flaws along the way. B+ (just slightly)
