A Time to Kill review

It starts where a 10-year-old Tonya Hailey is viciously raped and beaten by two white racists—James Louis "Pete" Willard and Billy Ray Cobb. Carl Lee Hailey, recalls a similar case from the year before wherein four white men raped a black girl in a nearby town. Billy Ray Cobb's brother, Freddy Lee Cobb, is seeking revenge for Carl Lee's killing of his brother. A remarkable plot with endearing portrayals from almost every cast. A Time to Kill is a smart drama with believable situations.
