Storyline

Lara Brennan is arrested for murdering her boss with whom she had an argument. It seems she was seen leaving the scene of the crime and her fingerprints were on the murder weapon. Her husband, John would spend the next few years trying to get her released, but there's no evidence that negates the evidence against her. And when the strain of being separated from her family, especially her son, gets to her, John decides to break her out. So he does a lot of research to find a way. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Goofs

Lara is held in the Allegheny County jail for three years after her conviction. Convicted murderers are not held in county jails in PA. She would have only been there temporarily for a pending hearing in Allegheny County Court. Shortly after her conviction, she would have been transferred into the custody of the PA Department of Corrections and transported to the State Correctional Institution at Muncy on the other side of the state for classification to either SCI Muncy or SCI Cambridge Springs.

Heart-stoppingly good!
27 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Had read some positive / negative reviews so wasn't sure what to expect.

I cannot believe how emotional this film was! The beginning is good - we find out who everyone is and how everyone got to where they are, nothing especially exciting but well-written and acted. Then the film kicks into gear with the escape.

Honestly, I was actually shaking at one point with nerves because I wasn't sure if they would make it or not.

People criticising films for not being believable should go and watch documentaries.

This film was exciting, had excellent music, was well acted and the positives FAR outweighed any negatives.

Definitely glad I watched this.

9/10
