This review is from: In the Name of the Father [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
First of all, I have to say that I liked the performance of Day-Lewis a lot. Thomson didn't appear in the movie so much, which is a pity as I was expecting to see more of her. The plot is predictable and some of the characters in the movie were caricaturistic. Many of the scenes were exaggerated and implausible, and I got confused by the cars in the movie which didn't seem to signal clearly what decade the scene was happening in, as in a scene where all the cars that you could see were from late-'60s to mid-'70s except for an 80s Toyota. Are we in the '80s now or is the '80s car there unintentionally? Small things like that matter, especially in the age of bluray movies when mistakes don't just blend into the background.

You do know that this film is based on the true story outlined in Conlon's autobiography 'Proved Innocent'? In this respect I don't know why you would say that the plot is predictable and use descriptions such as implausible and exaggerated.
