In a society in which you must go to jail or serve time, without much thought given to the decision of who should go and who should stay and the reasons why. Shari Roberts and Roshan Sethi give us an insight into the concept of mercy and the way it is used in today's society. I didn't see the movie in theaters, I watched it on TV, and I don't regret that decision. The movie is based on the events that occurred in 1986 when Roshan Sethi was convicted of raping a 16 year old girl. He was sentenced to the minimum 30 years of life without parole for his crime. The movie gives a great insight to the decisions that people must make in the same situation. The movie also shows how the judicial system treats victims of rape. There is no mercy shown in the system, and the people's decisions must be made in an appropriate way. It is an interesting story that shows how an ordinary man made a crime that changed the life of the victim. The movie shows the flaws in the system, and the way in which it is run. It also shows how much the system holds people to account and how criminals don't have to be. The people in the story are the people who have to make the decisions, and the people that are responsible for their decisions. The movie is a great story and shows the issues that are caused by the judicial system, and it is well written and well directed. The actors do a great job, and I will say that they did a great job. This is a great movie that will make you think and will make you think about the decisions that you must make. This is a must see movie, and a must watch movie.

I first became aware of this movie in a club in 2002, and was immediately reminded of it. I decided to purchase it because I'm a big fan of Clint Eastwood. So I've seen this movie over and over again and still have the same fond memories. I even purchased the soundtrack for the movie, because it was just so awesome. This movie is about the friendship of a young man and his best friend who find themselves thrown in jail and that's when it gets interesting. The movie is about the friendship between these two young men, and how they work together to escape the prison they're in. It's really a heartwarming story. It's extremely entertaining. The acting in this movie is top notch. The actors in this movie, of course, have all been nominated for awards, and they really deserve it. Michael Douglas, Jodie Foster, and of course Clint Eastwood, are just outstanding. It's a movie that's really great, and I recommend it to anyone.

I've seen the movie several times and it just never gets old for me. I think this movie is an amazing glimpse of how many people affected by some very strange events, suffered from schizophrenia at some point in their lives. The movie shows all of the reasons why these people would want to kill themselves and the consequences they faced. This movie is so powerful that it will get to you just thinking about it. The ending left me with the feeling that this movie really got to them and helped them to get over their problems. This is a movie that should be seen by everyone, because it will be an influence for some people for the rest of their lives. I would like to say to the producer, actors, writer, directors, whoever, this movie deserves all the accolades it gets and more. This movie is a must see for everyone. It is a great film that you should not miss.

I like this movie and I hope it gets better, it's not easy to find! I liked the acting, especially by Allison Janney and Judy Davis. The story was pretty simple, and the director did a good job of not confusing the viewers. I hope this movie will be nominated for an Oscar, because it deserves it.

I was very excited to see this movie. I think it is very powerful and there is some really strong scenes. I really loved the whole story and it was a lot of drama and really great acting. I think this movie is a really good example of how movies should be made. I don't think it was an extreme drama, but it did show a lot of different things. I am really glad to see some people still writing a lot about the movie and how bad it was. I thought the movie was really great and it was probably one of the best movies I have seen. I recommend this movie to everyone. It is a really good story and it is a great drama. I also really hope this movie is going to get good reviews because I think it is really great.

An intriguing film. The human story is riveting, the romantic story is engaging. It's an American film with an Indian background. The story is about forgiveness, and the human power that can turn even the most unlikely of people into heroes. This film is worth watching for the human story and the story about forgiveness. If you can watch it without thinking too much, you will enjoy it. If you are more open to the elements of Indian culture, you will also enjoy it.

This is definitely a different film to what I have seen before. I really enjoyed this film. The story was good. The direction was great. The acting was great. The direction. I didn't know the ending of this film, but it wasn't too good, I didn't expect it to end like that. The music was also good. I think this film should get an Oscar. I think the director did a great job. I am very disappointed that so many people did not enjoy this film. I think this film could have been a lot better. I like the film, but it is not good enough to get a lot of credit. I think the films could have been much better.

Funny that one of the biggest cliches of the industry is that they try to deny that this is a biopic. Not to worry. It's a biopic. Unfortunately, the way they try to get away with it is more of a cover-up. This is the first biopic I have seen of a real woman in the great tradition of Laurence Olivier, Vittoria Fellini and Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Here, she is largely shown as a folk singer. Her fall from grace is much more drawn out than in Meryl Streep's latest. She is really the first female writer to do so. In fact, we learn early on that she has never written a novel. In the film, we learn that she has always been a writer, and that she feels no need to write a novel because she has "written what she felt." We are constantly reminded that she has always been the daughter of a rich man. Then we are never told who she really is, or what her motives are. The music was simply done in a way that made me believe it was done by a real musician. Her lack of motivation as a writer is in no way the fault of her, but rather the inability to write what she feels. For that, she has been a failure. To have the real Mariel Hemingway, you would have had to have her go through the same ordeal, or someone who knew her like she knew herself. You would have to have her write a novel, which would have taken at least 30 years. She was a woman who simply loved her family and had no more wish to write. She has lived and died a true American's life, and her story is not that of a writer. A very nice film, and hopefully that will encourage other writers to get back in the saddle and finish the work.

This film is not just another example of art house cinema. It has not many of the typical star turn performances of modern films and it doesn't have a terrible soundtrack. It's more or less a "guy flick" and a man-and-a-hunk-and-girlfriend comedy. It's a bit violent at times. It's also a film with a sense of humor. It's definitely not a bad film by any means. This film is very different from the usual Hollywood fare and it is worth a watch. I think it's one of the better films I have seen in a while and that's saying something. I highly recommend it.

Leila (Jenny Seagrove) is a quiet lady who has her fair share of problems. One problem she has is her affair with a doctor, Daniel (Jake Weber), who has just moved in next door. Although he is new, he seems to be interested in Leila. One night he visits her in the hospital and convinces her to leave her husband. She can't understand why he is so fascinated by her. What exactly does he want from her? Does he want her to suffer from his illness? Well, there is more than that. He wants to see her die. He uses a list of instructions from her doctor to help him. Can this be any worse than the bedeviled relationship between her and her husband? Leila is told she is to be sent to an asylum in Canada. She tries to convince the governor that she needs the treatment but he does not agree. He is a heartless man and will not even give her money to pay for the medical care. He will only allow her to leave and then she will be sent back to Germany. It is a scene that is hard to watch and one that will send chills down your spine. I would say that this is a very good film that makes you think. A great film that is able to make you think.

I've been to one trial of the so called 'innocent until proven guilty' system in my lifetime. The movie came as a little bit of a shock, and I couldn't help but wondering whether the officer who arrested me was still on the force. I was fortunate enough to watch the movie a few times, and the result was that I began to re-evaluate the process. I felt a lot better after watching the movie. It was also a relief to see the movie after years of seeing so much misinformation about it, including the infamous "torture tape". I'd like to recommend the movie to any one who is thinking about taking their first run in court or about being arrested or about the rights and wrongs of the criminal justice system. I'll leave you with the most important part of the movie, which is probably the most important part of all: the freedom of choice of a man who was arrested, and what he chose to do.

One of the best I have ever seen. My favorite of all period.

A depiction of life in a rural California community in the 1950s. It follows the life of a family who have a problem with alcoholism. It also follows the relationships between the family members. In between are scenes of the daily lives of the parents. There is much detail given about what is going on in the family. The writing is intelligent and clear. It has a great flow to it. The acting is believable and is perfectly cast. The family is very likable, the adults are great and the children are perfect. The film is realistic and easy to follow. The music is great and helps to tell the story. The direction is a little slow at times, but this is a good point. I recommend this movie to anyone who has not seen it. The only reason that I gave it a 8 is because of the music. It was great.

So I have had a lot of experience with the "best director" and "best actor" awards. I can't say this film was a "Best Director" but it certainly deserves a "Best Actor" nomination for Forrest Whitaker. At the same time, this film deserves a "Best Picture" nomination. The story was well-told, the acting was excellent, and the direction was wonderful. The writing was also very well-done. The story was also about one of Forrest's earlier trials. Some people who haven't seen this film yet have called this a "Made for TV movie". I have seen this film at the suggestion of a friend who was also familiar with the story and wanted to see it. I'm glad I did. A well-told story is one of the most powerful ways to tell a story. If you liked this film, you will probably also like The Aviator, Rushmore, etc. I'm happy to recommend it to anyone.

The main problem with this movie is that it's too long. The first hour is too much, and the ending seems to be a little rushed. What I'm trying to say is that the second hour is really good. It really gets to the point. It really shows a great deal of the details about the politics and the way that they are moving things around. It really gives an interesting look at what's going on. There are also some interesting scenes and scenes of violence that seem to be staged for dramatic effect. But really, the story is not really that important in this movie. The real heart of the movie is the tension and drama that comes from the relationship between these two men. The key question that the film asks is what kind of man is David, and the answer is that there are two. The first is the slow, calculating and cautious David, the second is the wild, violent and aggressive David. As the film goes on, we see how much their relationship is divided between them. And that division is portrayed very well, so much so that it's hard to take this movie seriously. As one might expect, the film's main point of interest is the politics and the way that they are moving things around. It's not hard to see how these two men are getting closer and closer together, and how they are getting very uncomfortable with each other. The film shows that the world of politics is corrupt and one cannot rely on the good intentions of people, but also that they are just pawns in this corrupt game. As the film ends, the viewer can really feel that there are two different personalities in David and Thomas. David is still the man who is trying to stay free of the world, but he knows that he has to do something to make his situation better. At the same time, he knows that he has to do something, and that he must do something, otherwise he will end up in the jail, where he will just die. The other, more violent, part of the movie is Thomas, who is the more free and a little wild man. His actions are his own, and he just needs to express himself and do something. He is not really concerned about what others think, and he doesn't want to be confined by others. This part of the movie is very interesting and has a lot of great scenes. But the whole movie is divided between the two. In the end, you are left with a feeling that everything is in David's mind, and everything that he does is because he is suffering from his own fault. There are many movies that use this approach, but this movie is the best that I have ever seen. All in all, this is a very good movie, and I give it 8/10.

Just got back from seeing the film and all I can say is that I'm in complete agreement with the three key aspects of this movie - it's a great work of art, it's a beautiful film, and the message it brings out is simple and powerful. The message, as always, is simple and powerful. It's about how difficult it can be to forgive someone. You can't. At least not for long. The story is about the stories we tell our children, especially about how to forgive and to move on. I think a lot of us need to start doing that. The movie itself is beautiful and speaks to us in ways we often don't even notice. I saw the film at a packed house and I have no idea how anyone could not be moved. Some scenes just knocked me out. I loved the acting and especially, I was moved by the emotion of all the actors. I found it to be a stunning piece of art. It's the best movie I've seen this year and I highly recommend it. I believe it to be a masterpiece.

From start to finish I didn't expect a lot from this film, as it was the first Sundance film I've seen in a while. What I got was a cinematic journey through the story of a man who was deemed a threat to society, with the idea of turning him loose. Despite his great intellect, and brilliant skills with computers, the government was finally satisfied with the end result. I couldn't really believe it. I was ready to leave this film for a while after the first ten minutes. The stories kept us guessing as to what would happen next, which was good, but still kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the movie. I was not disappointed. The ending was an even better surprise to me. After all, I knew it would be at least somewhat well done. The ending is a bit of a letdown, but a good one. If you are a fan of David Fincher, I'd recommend checking this film out. It's one of his more emotional films that focuses more on the character and less on the action. This film has an interesting story that keeps you engaged throughout, but it is also a bit slow paced at times. With the acting, I was impressed with the performances of the two leads. With this being an ensemble cast, I was surprised at how well they were able to portray their characters. For a more dramatic film, I would recommend watching The Talented Mr. Ripley, with Leonardo DiCaprio, John Cusack, and Tom Hanks. However, this film doesn't have the dark feel of that film, and you will not be disappointed by this film.

Elvis' "Love Me Tender" is a moving, elegiac and cinematic look at a man who doesn't think he deserves a second chance. I don't want to sound unkind to him or his family, but if you can get past all the sexual tension and the nastiness he's suffered, you'll be blown away by this sensitive, funny, wise and sensitive film about love and forgiveness. Never before has a serious film dealt with the issue of forgiveness. Reminded me of Danny Collins in "Of Mice and Men". This movie has a beautiful story, but even though it may leave you with a nice feeling, it may not be enough to make it an emotional experience. It's a compelling film, but it doesn't hold up under scrutiny. I can't give it an eight because it never really gets to the center of its story, it's not as moving as it could have been and it's also not as funny. It's interesting, but not very good.

I am happy that this film is out. It is very sad that at this time there is not much information out there about what happened to the boy. The filmmakers didn't show everything and they also didn't tell us the whole story, but what they showed was the best that we could see. This is a film about the worst case of early adolescent suffering. They also told the story of his parents and how the family suffered from the loss. This is a story that is important and even if you don't care about the story, you should watch it and see it through. There are too many stories about trauma in the world and this one is a little different. It shows us how not to turn a tragedy into a tragedy. The movie is about how the tragedy shaped his family. The question is, "How does this child respond to this?" They are all different and there are different reactions. We have different answers. I thought the film was very touching, but there were many things I didn't like. I felt it was too slow. It could have been longer. I also felt that some of the reactions were too violent. If that is what you are looking for, I would suggest you watch this film.

The Out of Towners (2006): Dir: Eli Roth / Cast: Billy Bob Thornton, Natalie Portman, Ethan Hawke, Ben Foster, Jonathan Banks: Delightful and overstuffed telling of the painful story of Troy Diamond, a charismatic, criminally insane, hitchhiker who is in danger of being evicted from his apartment because of an unpaid rent. The story becomes more and more horrifying as the film progresses as Troy's actions lead to more and more torture as the tension reaches its climax. Directed by Eli Roth, who presents the film in a dizzying and unfocused style, the film does a fantastic job at keeping the audience on edge, with many sequences that could have been lost in the excitement. Billy Bob Thornton, Natalie Portman, Ethan Hawke, Ben Foster, and Jonathan Banks all star as Troy. Billy Bob plays Troy, a father and a man that looks out for his family. Troy and his wife have a nice baby and are on their way to a wedding. Troy decides to go on a motorcycle trip through the outlying town of Compton with a lot of people that he has never seen before. As Troy travels through the canyon, his life becomes more and more difficult, as he is stalked by the law and by a younger man that he never saw before. The film's most brilliant aspect is the cinematography, which was previously used in such films as "Walk the Line," "Sicario," and "Death Race," all of which were Oscar winners. These scenes are exceptionally beautiful and visually sumptuous. Billy Bob is completely over the top in the portrayal of Troy, a man who is a very powerful man who takes his family for granted and doesn't do anything to help himself. The performances are quite good all around, with Natalie Portman and Ethan Hawke playing the parents well. Billy Bob plays Troy very well, but Natalie Portman is superb in her portrayal of the wife. She is also very convincing in her character, as she becomes a mother in the film. Ben Foster plays a character very well. He was very believable in his role and added a lot of depth to the character. The other people that play the supporting roles are also good, as they all give great performances. The music is also fantastic, as it was used in the aforementioned films. It was used in the most appropriate and fitting moments. The film was directed by Eli Roth, who is known for such films as "The Passion of the Christ," "Diary of the Dead," and "Troy." He also has directed in "A Walk to Remember," "Last Tango in Paris," and "Rudy." "The Out of Towners" is a great film that is one of the best of the year and should be applauded for its use of beautiful cinematography. Score: 8 1⁄2 / 10
