Chris O'Donnell, two-time Academy Award® winner Gene Hackman and Oscar® winner Faye Dunaway star in this gripping suspense thriller based on John Grisham's explosive best-selling novel. O'Donnell stars as idealistic young attorney Adam Hall who takes on the death row clemency case of his onetime Klansman grandfather, Sam Cayhall (Hackman). With just 28 days before the execution, Adam sets out to retrace the events leading to the crime for which Sam was convicted. As the impending death sentence looms closer, Adam works quickly to uncover the family's history for any hidden clues. In a white-knuckle series of twists and turns, Adam discovers deceptions and dark secrets that ultimately lead him to the startling truth.

The story, about a young lawyer handling the last appeals of his grandfather, who is on death row, has enough little surprises and mysteries to stay interesting, and the stars milk it for all they’ve got.

Lacking the surface glitz, attention-grabbing plot and star power of John Grisham's previous adaptations, Folley's film will also suffer due to comparisons with the similarly-themed and better Tim Robbins' Dead Man Walking, released last year.
