powerful drama
2 April 2004 | by abknorSee all my reviews

This is a powerful drama about a guy who tries to get to grips with getting out of jail and being released back into society. Nice for people who like this sort of film (usually shown early in the evening on the women's channel, this one must have acquired some sort of filmhouse stigma on the way), but not my cup of tea.

There were some interesting ideas in this one, such as the lady from the rehabilitation who kept using social worker talk as if reality had completely passed her by, but too few and far between to lift this film to the next level.

Still, quite entertaining, with enough humor to never make it completely boring. I switched from the last half hour of Hannibal to this, and did not regret that choice.
