Storyline

The murder of an African American youth in rural Alabama has gone unpunished, unsolved and uninvestigated for almost twenty years. But that changes when Nashville Times reporter Matt Harper meets an idealistic blue blood bent on discovering the truth. 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

why the bad reviews?

This is most definitely an anti-racist film and an intelligent one at that. There is also a good love story thrown in, in fact two good love stories if you count the one between father and son. That latter one is maybe not explored enough and dealt with in a rather "cartoonish" way but what can you expect to cover during 90 minutes? Eric Roberts has never been better and as far as I can see, being a guy, never more attractive-looking. Never knew he had so much stile.

Definitely one of them feel-good films and a pity to miss. Lucky for me that I expect people who vote for films are usually made up by the same crowd that would vote for a noise like "Stairway to Heaven" being the best song written. The masses are always wrong and there's a lot of deception-work constantly needed to keep it that way.
