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

Paul Haggis was looking for an alternative film to make, when his planned biopic of Martin Luther King fell apart due to budget problems. That was when he chanced upon the French film Pour Elle (2008). See more »

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.

Excellent!
25 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the best films I have watched of late. Everything you would wish it to be. Very tense at times and keeps you on edge. Great acting from Russell Crowe and the story is very smart and gripping. Not as predictable as some films seem to be when using a similar storyline to this. Very entertaining all the way through from start to finish with no gaps which is always good for a film that exceeds 2 hours in duration. A very different performance from Crowe which we don't offer see, but be played it very well, and very powerful. Definitely a must watch. Don't wait around for this one, I would strive to watch it straight away for those that haven't done so yet.
