About the Movie

Oscar-winner Diane Keaton ("Something's Gotta Give," "Annie Hall") stars in the title role as a prison warden's wife who falls in love with death row convict Ed Biddle, played by Oscar-winning box office star Mel Gibson ("Lethal Weapon" franchise, "Braveheart"). Believing he's innocent, she helps him and his convicted brother escape. Based on a real case from 1901, Pittsburgh, this dramatic picture co-stars Matthew Modine ("Birdy," "Married to the Mob") with Trini Alvarado ("Little Women," "Babe"), Terry O'Quinn ("Primal Fear," "Tombstone") and Edward Herrmann ("Annie Hall," "The Lost Boys"). Directed by acclaimed Australian director Gillian Armstrong ("Little Women").

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: a very strange and maddening movie, being a fascinating tale that's nowhere as provocative as it first promises to be and as the reputations of everyone connected with it might lead you to expect. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: didn't for one moment convince me that these were real people, acting from the bottom of their hearts. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: handsomely mounted period piece, but can't shake off a certain air of good manners – Derek Adams, Time Out, Mar 12, 2008

Rotten: The outcome is predictable, and the prospectively livelier second half never breaks free from the torpor of the prison scenes. – Film4, Mar 28, 2013
