True Crime

True Crime He's a boozer, a skirt chaser, a careless father. You could create your own list of veteran reporter Steve Everett's faults, but right now there isn't time. At San Quentin, a Death Row prisoner is scheduled to die at midnight - a man Everett has suddenly realised is innocent.

In his 21st film as a director and 41st as a star, Clint Eastwood memorably plays Everett in True Crime, a savvy beat-the-clock thriller that 'brims with more life that you can describe' (Henry Sheehan, Knight Rider Newspapers).

Isaiah Washington, Denis Leary, Lisa Gray Hamilton, James Woods, Diane Verona and others in a razor-sharp ensemble populate this suspense tale that tightens to nerve-frying intensity intercutting the parallel stories of the inmate and Everett's scramble to save him... and perhaps lift his own life out of the trash heap along the way. Everett is harried, determined and trying not to self-destruct as he probes the circumstances of a long-ago murder.

And the clock is ticking.
