Drama
Another Hilary Swank crusade against injustice. She’s once again in familiar lower-middle-class territory as the sister of a man wrongfully convicted of murder (Sam Rockwell, in one of the film’s best perfs). So she spends eighteen years putting herself through law school and employing the then-new technology of DNA testing to get him out of prison. Swank and Minnie Driver, as a lawyer pal, do things we’ve seen them do often before – it’s only in the character parts (Jennifer Lewis, Melissa Leo, and Rockwell) that director Tony Goldwyn and screenwriter Pamela Gray manage to puncture the story’s bubble of boredom. Just because it’s a true story doesn’t mean we want to watch it. (107 min.)
