When Jackson goes to Dora's and climbs into the well, he is wearing a plaid shirt - next in the house his shirt is a solid color - in the morning, his shirt is back to plaid. This may or may not be due to his shirt getting wet in the well. It's possible he's wearing one of Ray's shirts. See more »

Well-Executed Low-Key Whodunit
9 May 1999 | by janbi36See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite types of movie: thoughtful, shy writer pieces together events from fifty years ago, exonerates an innocent man and discovers something important about himself in the process. The movie doesn't try to do too much, gives you enough information about the primary characters without leaving you wondering if there was more background in the book.

I've always liked David Straithairn and he gives an easy portrayal of the main character. Mary McDonnell is good as the unjustly convicted murderer's daughter though I could have done without the halting, "don't really care about anything" accent/tone. Definitely worth seeing if you're into the story-type movie.
