Prison life of convicted felon waiting for a chance at freedom
This movie had me interested the whole way through. Loved the lead, Nathan Wilson, and the main supporting actor, Martin Sacks. Nathan playing the role of an innocent, but convicted rapist serving his time and Martin a hard core life-long criminal, form an incredibly close relationship.
If you don't want any mention of God in your movies, skip this one. It's not the underlying theme of the movie, but it does play a role in the personalities of some of the characters.
All the girls will love Nathan. But it's Martin I'd like to see more of in the future. Great character actor, I could see him in a variety of roles.
Rise keeps a steady pace throughout. Based on a true story, this drama is definitely worth a look.
