The murder of an African American youth in rural Alabama has gone unpunished, unsolved and uninvestigated for almost twenty years.

Harper undertakes the investigation despite the opposition of his publisher, violent threats from mysterious forces, a break-up with his fiancee and his father's cancer diagnosis. Deadline is a story of murder, family, race, and of redemption - for a small Southern town and for Matt Harper. Written by Mark Ethridge

Worth seeing! Eric Roberts is great
23 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is definitely worth seeing. Good solid crime drama.

I was only familiar with Steve Tally from the American Pie movies and similar high school/college comedies. Who knew Steve Tally could pull it off, good for him. This is a great dramatic role for him. And I'm a huge fan of Eric Roberts - great role for him too!

It was actually after reading about the Trayvon Martin case that I stumbled across this movie and thought it was so timely. The stories were so similar and Deadline shows a side of reality that often goes ignored.

Make sure you check out the film!!
