Fox Rich is a fighter. The entrepreneur, abolitionist and mother of six boys has spent the last two decades campaigning for the release of her husband, Rob G. Rich, who is serving a 60-year sentence for a robbery they both committed in the early 90s in a moment of desperation. Combining the video diaries Fox has recorded for Rob over the years with intimate glimpses of her present-day life, director Garrett Bradley paints a mesmerizing portrait of the resilience and radical love necessary to prevail over the endless separations of the country's prison-industrial complex.

Less than honest
11 January 2021 | by extracontestSee all my reviews

Robert Richardson (why the film uses a false name is uncertain) received a harsh sentence for armed robbery. The film neglects to mention that Rob Rich and his wife Sybil Fox Richardson tried to tamper with the jury by visiting two jurors, that shots were fired when the robbers were fleeing and that Rob Rich had a prior conviction in Missouri. The armed robbery, the jury tampering, the shots and the fact that Rob Richardson had a prior conviction should have been mentioned in the film. There was also another man involved who was a family member of Rob Robertson, he received 45 years. What happened to that man would be interesting to know.
