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

Trivia

Russell Crowe was Paul Haggis' first choice for the lead. At the time, Crowe was working on Robin Hood (2010), and was tired of the film's lengthy production, so wasn't initially keen about jumping into another film. The script convinced him otherwise. See more »

Superb!
1 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Set aside the fact that people are forgetting how to enjoy a flick. Pick away all you want at little parts of even the greatest film ever and you'll surely find something to criticize. A movie is, well, a movie. So now that all that is out of the way, where do I even start? This film brought me to tears, it had my attention the whole way through. I don't understand those that say parts are slow, what were they watching? It wasn't this one, that's for sure. Everybody that worked to put this one together did a fantastic job, and it most definitely shows. I do believe the movie touched me so intensely in part because I have a wife and a son, and was able to feel a relation to the characters. Regardless, the movie was just fantastic, and you will not regret the experience. Unless of course you are one of the rising population of "movie critics" that score films based on guidelines, or however they get their ridiculous views. Enjoy this one!
