    A Brilliant portrayal of the Death Penalty in 50's England--The shocking true tale of a miscarriage of justice that will forever stain the honor of the British legal system... A wonderful piece of work- riveting and unsettling!!

    This is something of an obscure film, but if you happen to ever see it on, I recommend you watch it. Featuring Christopher Eccleston in(amazingly) his first film role, this is the true story of Derek Bentley, an epileptic 19 year old with the mind of an 11 year old. Telling his story of why he was executed, it's very sad, and beautifully acted. The saddest thing about this film is that you know it has a sad ending, so no matter what happens, there never eally is hope. The supporting cast are great, the story is slow but greatly told, and it is one of the finest British films of the first half of the 90's.

    An interesting and in a way heartbreaking movie, well worth a watch even if it's just for the amazing acting by the cast.
