Fresh: It's a solid if somewhat straightforward story of sacrifice and allegiance. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Oct 22, 2010

Fresh: In the hands of Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell and a strong supporting cast, this earnest film manages to tug a few heartstrings and say something important in the process. – Anthony Kaufman, Dallas Morning News, Oct 22, 2010

Fresh: Goldwyn isn't an amazing director, but there are pretty good performers in this film. – Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia), Feb 24, 2011

Compelling Drama Lets Rockwell Shine

Based on a the true story of Betty and Kenny Waters, this touching, well-written film, is aided by fine performances from Hilary Swank, Minnie Driver, Juliette Lewis, but most notably Sam Rockwell. He is perfect as the affable bad-boy, wrongfully accused of a crime he didn't commit. Swank is convincing as the devoted sister, who dedicates her life and sacifices everything in order to prove his innocence. Rockwell is such an underrated actor, and it's always a pleasure to watch him in a dynamic role such as this. While the tone and overall subject matter doesn't break any new ground (think Erin Brockovich meets Shawshank Redemption), the reminder that this is a true story, and more accurately portrayed than many Hollywood treatments of similarly biographical material, is what sets this film apart. Enjoyable from beginning to end. Well worth a rental.

Awesome

I had been looking forward to seeing this movie since I saw the trailer. It definitely didn't let me down. Hilary Swank is as amazing as ever and the chemistry between her and her brother is so strong. Loved the movie!
