Audience Reviews for The Wronged Man

How to make a story that spans 22 years interesting: you can't. So you hire Julia Ormond and hope for the best. I really wanted to see the real perpetrator caught, but I guess that doesn't always happen in real life.

I enjoyed this Lifetime movie...based on the true story of Calvin Willis who was wrongfully convicted and given life for the rape of a young girl. Julia Ormand plays the tough 'Never give up' lawyer who takes on his case...there were some very sad moments here, one which caused me to break out the kleenex. The ending was cool, they had some footage of the real Calvin and his lawyer :)

This got an extra half point for being a true story. Imagine being falsely accused of child rape and being thrown in prison. Then DNA finally becomes available and you can''t afford it. You finally get assistance but you end up being imprisoned for 22 years. I think the state of La owes this poor man an apology and some dough!
