Good Southern Film
7 November 2010 | by jojoscatt7See all my reviews

I am always looking for good films to watch with my family. Last night, we sat down with our kids (13 and 15) and watched THE TRIAL.

It was refreshing to see a movie that had a simple message and for once not have that message rammed down our throats. My grandmother died recently and some of the elements from the film really helped.

I loved the cast. Matthew Modine has always been a favorite and this seemed like one of the few recent films he's done that really challenged him.

Now... as a Southerner it was nice to see no real stereotypes and yet everything seemed natural. I think it helped that they let actors like Robert Forster just be himself instead of putting on a fake accent.

All in all, we liked it and recommend it.
