The outcome is predictable, and the prospectively livelier second half never breaks free from the torpor of the prison scenes. Full Review

An unusual love story and a religious film about grace and forgiveness. Full Review

handsomely mounted period piece, but can't shake off a certain air of good manners Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- a very strange and maddening movie, being a fascinating tale that's nowhere as provocative as it first promises to be and as the reputations of everyone connected with it might lead you to expect.

Rating: 2/4 -- didn't for one moment convince me that these were real people, acting from the bottom of their hearts. Full Review

Description by

Kate Soffel is a warden's wife so full of Christian values that she regularly visits her husband's jail, handing out bibles and attempting to reform the convicts. But Ed Biddle, a rather seductive young man who claims he's been wrongly convicted of murder, leads the repressed Mrs. Soffel into temptation. She decides to help him and his brother escape, and even though it complicates their getaway and puts them at greater risk, Ed persuades Kate to run away with them to Canada.
