Straight forward made for TV Movie
20 February 2003 | by David OgilvieSee all my reviews

Ralph Waite plays a priest wrongly charged of doing robberies of convenience stores. Jerry Zaks plays a Jewish lawyer who takes his case and sets about proving his innocence. Supposedly a true story it's a by the numbers movie. Waite is his usual appealing self, the sort of guy who reminds you of your grand father. Zaks, who I've never seen before,(looks a bit like Peter McNicol) is perhaps the star of the show with a good performance. The film is worth watching once if you like watching Ralph Waite, but it is perhaps 10 minutes to long.
