Critic's Review Heading
Good
Three-year imprisonment versus a friend's hanging is the intriguing moral dilemma that faces two young men in this largely engrossing drama, whose by-the-numbers paces are elevated to a higher level by the strong acting ensemble led by Vince Vaughn, Anne Heche, and Joaquin Phoenix. It is not a great film, but its weighty concerns and the care and craft with which they are addressed make it a diverting dramatic oasis in the substance-parched late summer movie season.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Lewis (Joaquin Phoenix), the gentle idealist stayed in Malaysia to study endangered orangutans. Tony (David Conrad) is a reflective, quiet structural engineer, determined to fill New York City's skyline with even more skyscrapers. Sheriff (Vince Vaughn) is a cynical anti-hero, brandishing a cool, comedic indifference and who forfeited ambition long ago.

It is Lewis' committed attorney Beth Eastern (Anne Heche), who disrupts Sheriff and Tony's lives with the dire proposition, complicated by the grave interference of an ambitious reporter, M.J. Major (Jada Pinkett Smith).

Will they go back and share responsibility for the drug charge all three committed and that left only Lewis with prison and a death sentence? It is this question that forces Sheriff and Tony to come to grips with their paradise lost.
