A moving and powerful legal drama that succeeds when it focuses on the emotions of a family put under great duress. The legal courtroom parts get bogged down with pacing issues sometimes, but the personal moments between father and son in prison are golden. Both Day-Lewis and Postlethwaite turn in magnificent performances.

This is a wonderful movie, a must for anyone who enjoys a good underdog story. It starts off strong, loses momentum toward the end, but is worth seeing for the performances of Daniel Day-Lewis and Pete Postlethwaite. Yes, this is a true story about injustice and political corruption, but at its heart is the relationship between father and son. Look out for the scene when Day-Lewis and Postlethwaite talk for the first time in jail, it's one of the best in recent film history!
