Trivia

Jackson Kinley wears his watch on on his right hand an writes with his right hand. Very usual. Also in a latter scene with the mother driving, the car passes guard rail the were not used until the lat 70s to early 80s. See more »

Goofs

As Jackson's mom leaves with the body of the girl she is driving a late 1940s or maybe 1950 Chevrolet with 1" whitewall tires. Believe the 1" whitewall did not come into use until late 50s and should have been the old wide whitewalls. See more »

A surprisingly well done story
3 May 1999 | by Robert-114See all my reviews

I rented this film without knowing anything about it and not expecting much more than a mediocre mystery. However, it's actually a very well done film, both in terms of story and character development. The story takes awhile to unfold as the first part of the film is focused on building characters and a sense of the town in which they live. This in itself is interesting as it comes across in a natural way and gives the viewer the feeling that these people are real human beings. Then we begin to follow a trail of clues both in the present and through flashbacks to the era of the crime. A mistake and a crime happened a long time ago on an abandoned country road. One man has been executed because of it. Others are forced to hide the truth, either to protect themselves or the people they care about. I can't say too much more without giving away the ending, but I think you'll find yourself pulled deeply into the story just as I did. If you enjoyed "Lone Star" then you'll probably enjoy this film too. Please don't dismiss it because it's a made for TV movie as it's certainly better than many theater films.
