Top Critic

Unpleasant courtroom psychological drama that is well-acted and well-meaning but fails in its attempt to be convincing in delivering its humanist message.

This is a must see movie! It has so much power it sucks you in. You feel like you are right there living it and feeling it. it shows how even the harshist of minds can be changed by leading them threw there own mind to see why they are wrong.

This movie does move a bit slow, but sadly does show the racial hatred that does and probably always will be in our society. Powerful performance between Jewish Lawyer and a Skinhead. Probably not a movie everyone will enjoy, but I found it very well executed.
