Unfortunately, only 6 of the dozens of stories that could be told
6 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Six riveting stories that are mesmerizing in the simplicity of the presentation and the power of the language. Innocent people--minorities and the poor, always--aren't always treated fairly by our justice system. Jesse Tafero, husband of Sunny Jacobs (played by Susan Sarandon in the film) was executed even though the evidence shows someone else committed the murder he was executed for. If it's liberal to want justice for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay for counsel, then, yes, this is a liberal film. I would also recommend "Dead Man Walking" and the neglected "Last Dance" for fictional films based on true cases. "The Exonerated" is actually a very moving, very well presented film that should make you angry as hell.
