The Life of David Gale

The Life of David Gale [2003]

Director: Alan Parker
Actor: Kevin SpaceyKate Winslet

This is a story of a learn’d man falling from grace, in jail for a murder he claims not to have committed, and ending up on death row, about to be executed. He agrees to an interview with a very specific journalist, and tries to get her to expose the real killers. The twist? The man was an avid activist against capital punishment.

Nice movie, very political without it feeling political. A bit too much drama, and far too easy a plot. I had it figured out way to soon. Good for a sunday afternoon.
