Audience Reviews for Place of Execution

Truth, and justice, are not the same thing. I was completely taken over by this movie. What I found most disturbing, is that even with all the atrocities the man committed, was it worth the punishment for the one crime he did not commit? Personally, I see justice was done, but this movie portrays the dilemma beautifully...and it is quite a dilemma. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys dramas with a philosophical angle to it. The questions of crime and punishment again are not black and white. Very well made Masterpiece Theater production.
