Profound and moving performance from Alfre Woodard! Aldis Hodge provides great insight to the internal calamity that may occur within the psyche when hope hangs from a delicate thread. The film overall is a good choice, if you enjoy exploring human relationships and work/ life balance. Resolution is left up to the audience to decide, regardless of what happens in the end. The film also questions the fairness of the justice system. There was one, maybe two shoddy or inconsistent frame changes within the entire film.

A career-defining performance from Alfre Woodard in a film that serves as a thoughtful look into the inner life of someone charged with one of the most difficult jobs any man or woman could have.

Great performances from Aldi's and Woodard but the movie itself can be very disturbing for some and it got no happy ending either. I really Pitt those who are into these kinda jobs.
