Convict Stone (Norton) tries to persuade his correctional officer (De Niro) to grant him parole using his wife (Jovovich) as bait.
Peculiar that this is straight-to-disc, as it’s an engrossing, timely drama with mesmeric performances. Edward Norton is the titular convict, trying to persuade Robert De Niro’s correctional officer to grant him parole — with a little help from a seductive Milla Jovovich… De Niro and Norton are brilliant in their philosophical back-and-forth and Jovovich simply sensational — a livewire, shocking performance from the zombie-killing queen. See it.
Great performances from the cast in this engrossing drama. Don't be put off by the straight-to-DVD connotations.
