Storyline

The true story of Toni Jo Henry, a woman tried for the crime of murder in 1942 in the state of Louisiana. Toni Jo, a product of childhood abuse and neglect, briefly discovers love and happiness that soon turns to despair when her husband Cowboy is sent to prison and she embarks on an ill-fated plan with an accomplice Arkie to free him. Because of her beauty, Toni Jo instantly becomes a notorious celebrity, drawing the unparalleled media attention of two highly publicized and sensational murder trials. Her story is a story of hope, a story of love and a story of redemption, as Toni Jo discovers the true strength within herself and, with the help of a priest, Father Richard is able to face her life with a calm and peace that defies explanation.

Toni Jo Henry's heartbreaking story and 1940's murder trial....a must watch!
26 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Pardon brings you, the viewer, front and center into the middle of the real-life story of Toni Jo Henry and the murder trial that ensues. Performances from actors John Hawkes, Jaime King and T.J. Thyne are gripping and evoke deep emotional connections with each character. While the subject of childhood abuse introduces us into the unveiling storyline, a more compelling bond of strength, friendship and resilience personifies the true heart of this film!The movie footage captures some amazing scenes, both in mood and context, while the close-ups of Jaime King give us a true "look" into the heart and soul of Toni Jo. A refreshing view into some perhaps forgotten pages of history. A remarkably well written and poignant movie you will not want to miss! Exceptional.
