Incredible realism
22 January 2002 | by (Chiiliwack BC Canada) – See all my reviews

Watching this superb movie is an almost painful experience inasmuch that it's incredible realism completely immerses one in the terrible experience that Stephen's family suffered; and continues to suffer. For much of the movie it was almost impossible to believe that the participants were in fact actors, and not the real people on whom this brutal miscarriage of justice was perpetrated.
