Academy award nominee David Strathairn stars in co-directors David Gow and Mark Adam's fiery tale of a Jewish, court appointed lawyer assigned the task of defending a murderous neo-Nazi skinhead.

Mike Downey (Andrew Walker) is a fierce member of the Aryan brotherhood who stands accused of a brutal, racially motivated murder. Now, behind prison walls, these two disparate souls will clash in the ultimate struggle of ideology as Dunkleman boldly attempts top put his professional beliefs before his personal beliefs, and his client clings to the hate that now threatens to consume both men from the inside out .

    I found this movie quite good. I was impressed by Andrew Walker and even when his preformance wasnt always gold, at least he was good to look at. Strathairn was alright, sometimes what his character said confused me, and I found certain metephors hard to follow or find meaning in. The story probably could have been done a little better but truly it was good. Not over the top, but good. What did this movie teach me? It takes a lot for me to actually be satisfied by an actor pretending to throw up. Im just never convinced.

    Quite a good movie, the chemistry between David and Andrew is excellent. Though I still feel there was something missing in the movie, it's still is a good movie with some great acting (though some of Mike's scenes seem forced).

    Not nearly as intriguing as watching paint dry...
