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.

Dramatic true story about a woman, Toni Jo Henry, who faces impossible odds in the Louisiana legal system in the 1940's.
24 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Pardon is a very engaging film with exceptional acting that tells a dramatic, heart wrenching tale. It is based on the true life story of Toni Jo Henry and her sensational murder trial in the 1940's in Louisiana. The Pardon shows the dramatic influence that childhood abuse has in one's later life. It is the story of finally finding love and its power to heal. The filming and powerful aura created make this a movie that will stay with the viewer long after seeing it. And Jaime King, John Hawkes, and T.J. Thyne give great performances that captivate you the entire movie. I highly recommend seeing this film if you like a dramatic, well told story with excellent acting, mood, and filming.
