When I saw this movie I knew this was something that could begin putting a dent into the whole racial experience. Who knows what they would have done in this situation. But the subliminal messages were most powerful.

I thought this movie sent such a strong message. The book was excellent also. I thought the closing sermention 'the truth via the heart' by Jake was genuis! If anyone has the words to the sermation please give them to me...i need it for school...thanks...and if you have only seen the movie read the book its terrific!

Our country may not always like to face itself, but when it does it is at its best--and an example for countries abroad. As our country is changing demographically and racially, this is a movie that should be watched as racial tension and brutality is always native to the United States. It is as Samuel L. Jackson said, "A battlefield."

This movie is one the best movies I have ever seen. If you want to see it then buy it or rent it.

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. I'm not just saying that because I'm in love with Matthew McConaughey, although I have to admit he gave a brillant performance. It's a very touching movie. It deals with discrimination and justice. My favorite part of the movie is near the end when Jake(McConaughey) tells everyone the story of the little girl. It brings everyone to tears including me. I reccommend for everyone to see this movie.

It's too bad that another Grisham plot is interrupted by the formatting of the disc! Half the movie is on side One; the other half is on side Two!! So if you want to see the whole of the movie, you have to get up, go to the DVD player and turn the disc over. There is no earthly reason for splitting the movie in this way, and no indication on the cover that this is the way it is formatted. Otherwise, a griping, tragic and suspenseful story based on what to some may seem outdated attitudes, but which ring very true even today.
