Could This Happen To Me or You?
23 April 2005 | by arcturus6See all my reviews

This is a very good film that shows how justice in our American system is sometimes lacking. The film centers on a young man (Bobby McLoughlin) with Brendon Fraser giving an excellent performance, who is wrongfully accused of a murder and the trials and tribulations that he and his parents must endure to prove his innocence. Martin Sheen and Caroline Kava give very good performances as the foster father and mother of McLoughlin.

I was particularly disturbed by the apparent lack of legal representation McLoughlin received at his initial trial at the hands of a so-called Public Defender. Also, the film depicts disturbing elements in law enforcement of police errors that are very slow in being corrected at the expense of the wrongfully accused. Had Mr. McLoughlin been wrongfully convicted of first degree murder, he could very well have been executed.

I highly recommend this film for those who may have known someone who was wrongfully accused or themselves accused. It is a thoughtful film that will hold your attention.
