Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Barry Levinson's Sleepers courted controversy for a number of reasons. Not only was there uncertainty as to whether the purportedly true story really happened, but the Catholic Church also frowned upon one of its major plot points: a priest's struggle over whether or not to lie under oath to protect a pair of vigilantes who have clearly committed murder. If these issues prompted more people to see the film, that's just as well, because it contains some interesting elements beyond those listed above. One is that it convincingly details the struggle of a prosecutor (Brad Pitt) to intentionally botch his case, but subtly enough that it doesn't draw suspicion. Never mind that Levinson doesn't explain why no one makes the connection between Pitt and the two defendants (Ron Eldard and Billy Crudup), who were his childhood friends -- the courtroom scenes are deft enough to excuse the plot hole. Levinson returns to familiar territory in the film's earlier scenes, giving an assured portrait of life in big city ethnic neighborhoods in the 1960s. New York stands in for his native Baltimore, where many Levinson films are set, but the same issues of coming of age in an insular working-class community are explored. There are no outstanding performances, outside of Robert De Niro as the conflicted priest, but the all-star ensemble makes for a solid piece of entertainment with serious issues, some of them more familiar than others, at its core.

    What a movie!!

    I really liked this movie. I saw it when I was in college, and have been looking to buy it ever since! I also want to buy the book, I think it would be good to see what was in the book that didn't make it to the movie.

    Not Just A Story But A True ForTell Of Courage And Friendship.

    This movie has gone straight throught my Heart and nerves leaving me with goosebumps. To Watch shuch a unbelievable true story but with a horrible concept is gripping. You cant help but watch it again and again. This story of true friendship will leave you thinkin of the true meaning of life. How it is not just somestuff that happens in life but true fellings that do matter. I can only urge you to see this movie and its incradible story. It will have you mezmarized as you see things you never thought possible come alive in front of your eyes. It will leave you in tears.This is only my opinion. You have to decide for yourself. I can only say you will never see life the same way again.
