All Critics (1)

Unpleasant courtroom psychological drama that is well-acted and well-meaning but fails in its attempt to be convincing in delivering its humanist message.

Not nearly as intriguing as watching paint dry...

Quite a good movie, the chemistry between David and Andrew is excellent. Though I still feel there was something missing in the movie, it's still is a good movie with some great acting (though some of Mike's scenes seem forced).
