A powerful film about the miss-use of the death penalty in the U.S.
16 September 2011 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Intelligent, mostly well acted filming of the stage play, as 6 people exonerated from death row tell their true stories, mostly as monologues, against a black background.

A powerful argument against the death penalty, it feels a bit stuck between embracing it's theatricality of approach, and trying to work as a more cinematic piece both in the way its shot, the occasional awkward 'flashbacks' and in the 'size' of the performances, which range from understated and small to quite theatrical and presentational.

But whatever questions one might have about the stylistic choices, there's no question that these are powerful, important true stories in that every rarer thing, a dramatized American film that head on addresses an issue with passion and intelligence.
