As part of the defense committee, Alice Bloomfield and George Shearer fight the blatant miscarriage of justice for the freedom of Henry and his friends.

At least that is what we are led to believe for the most part... Good luck wrapping your brain around another Uwe Boll produced paint splatter on the screen.

I think the ending was my favorite, it was refreshing. The film had decent acting with an okay story line, something you can watch on an off day though.
(jp) wrote: Neo Ned (Van Fischer, 2005)A fun if forgettable little film that is saved from Lifetime Original Moviedom solely by well-above-average performances by the two leads, The Hurt Locker's Jeremy Renner and 10 Things I Hate About You's Gabrielle Union. Renner plays the title character, a goofy, happy-go-lucky neo-Nazi (yeah, I was wondering about that too) at the opening of the film who is forced to question his beliefs when he finds himself falling for African-American hearttthrob Union. Despite her better judgment, she returns his affection, and the two of them set out to see if they can make a life for themselves despite their obvious fractured beginnings. It is very rare to see white power played for laughs, and any director who's going to attempt it has to be prepared to walk a very fine line; I get the feeling that's one of the reasons why this movie never went much of anywhere, but it seemed to me Van Fischer (Blink of an Eye) did a pretty good job with that aspect of the film, using the comedy aspects of it to keep the movie light while it strayed into some very dark places. It lacks subtlety in a lot of areas, and it pays lip service to American History X a time or two without ever approaching the depth or gravity of that one. Still, as a lightweight and surprisingly funny film about the redemption of a white-power skinhead, well, it would be pretty hard to do better, if only because it has been so rarely done before. ***

(br) wrote: That Evening Sun tells the story of Abner Meecham, an 80 year old man, whom leaves his nursing home and returns to his far to find that his son has been leasing it too an old enemy of his, Lonzo Choat. Meecham is a tough old man; he wants his land back, and what unfolds is a testament of wills between these two men. The film is well acted all around starting with Hal Holbrook as Abner Meecham. Meecham is an old school individual, whom is strong in his ways and Holbrook does a great job at capturing his strong will yet fragile frame. The visual design is very effective in this film with some unique and interesting compositions which really help to build tension at parts and you know.. tell the story. Its a strong story, and as the film progresses the viewer begins to understand exactly why Abner cares so much about his farm. It all unfolds very naturally.
