Metacritic

50

Based on Gerry Conlon's own account of his arrest and subsequent incarceration, the film takes forever to do what 60 Minutes does with the same meat in a single segment.

The movie does a harrowing job of showing how, and why, a man might be made to confess to a bombing he didn't commit.
