Summary
An Audience Award-winning film at the SXSW Film Festival, this is a stunning true-crime documentary with human core. In 1986 Michael Morton's wife Christine is brutally murdered in front of their only child, and Michael is convicted of the crime. Locked away in Texas prisons for a quarter century, estranged from his son, he has years to ponder questions of justice and innocence, truth and fate. Though he is virtually invisible to society, the Innocence Project and Michael's pro bono attorney spend years fighting for the right to test DNA evidence found at the murder scene. Their discoveries ultimately reveal that the price of a wrongful conviction goes well beyond one man's loss of freedom. Directed by two-time Academy Award nominee Al Reinert (For All Mankind, Apollo 13) "The stunning, infuriating tale of Michael Morton. Al Reinert, the film's director, tells the tale beautifully, via sparse interviews with Mr. Morton, his lawyers, his fellow inmates and, most movingly, jurors who imposed the wrongful verdict and the young son whose childhood Mr. Morton missed. The film isn't didactic; it lets you build to outrage on your own." - The New York Times "A powerful story of pain, injustice, redemption, and reconciliation." - Huffington Post "Recounts an outrageous miscarriage of justice without a trace of manufactured melodrama or visual hyperbole. The film's rivetingly straightforward style of storytelling is a perfect match for its subject. An inspiring tale of spiritual uplift, sympathetically detailing how religious faith gave Morton the strength to endure, and the mercy to forgive." - Variety
