After seeing this film I was really appalled by what Donald Marshall had to go through at the hands of the so-called "justice system". Even to this day, I still cannot believe that 11 years of his life were taken away JUST BECAUSE the Canadian "justice system" had failed him miserably. Of course the ONLY reason why he was never found innocent was because of his Native Mik'maq background. If he were a white man who killed a Native person, then he probably would have never been convicted of anything. Unfortunately the racist problems against the First Nations folks are just as bad, if not worse than they ever were. Now although Donald got millions of dollars in compensation for the miscarriage of justice that happened to him, that will NEVER make up for the 11 years that he lost forever!!
But........... anyways........ this is why I gave this film a 7 out of 10.
