Well Done Sharon Stone
on 6 February 2012
I am an avid Sharon Stone fan and for me this is one of her great performances. She plays a convicted murderer on death row whose latest clemency appeal has been denied.
Rob Morrow plays the young appeals officer who on examining her file discovers that she was badly defended at her trial and sets out to attempt to stay her execution.
The acting in, and directing of this fast moving drama is excellent. The relationship that developes between the doomed Cindy Ligget (Stone) and Rick Hayes (Morrow) is electrifying and as the story comes to a close one cannot but be moved by the bond that has developed between the two.
The murder scenes are quite grafic, however not overdone, so one is in no doubt about the horrendous murder that was commited 12 years prior.
The supporting cast were equally well chosen, so overall this is another good movie for lovers of murder most foul and detective work, that slipped by almost unnoticed by the critics.
The DVD copy I received is excellent. A pity no special features. I would really have liked a little background on the movie. However it still ranks up in my top 20 drama movies to see again, and again, and again.
