Lose who you are to save what you love.

Lara Brennan is arrested for murdering her boss with whom she had an argument. It seems she was seen leaving the scene of the crime and her fingerprints were on the murder weapon. Her husband, John would spend the next few years trying to get her released, but there's no evidence that negates the evidence against her. And when the strain of being separated from her family, especially her son, gets to her, John decides to break her out. So he does a lot of research to find a way. (Source: IMDB)

Starring: Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks

Megan's Movie Review:
Stress Fest. Intense. At times in the movie I couldn't keep watching because it stressed me out so much. I felt so bad for the husband & son because the wife was in prison. But I couldn't believe that he would murder, lie, and steal for his wife just to get her out of prison? Didn't he think about his child?! And then making his child a part of his crimes.. What if they got caught? There were so many moments in the movie that were close calls. He was pretty thorough in his research and making sure that his plan was successful. Ugh it stressed me out so much. And it wasn't a scary kind of stressed, it was just plain stressful. "Is he going to get away?" "Everything seems to be going wrong." Those were my thoughts. In the end, it was good and (*Spoiler*) she was innocent. I thought for sure she had done it but she really didn't. Well, I would recommend watching this movie. It was intense.

What'd you think of this exciting movie?

I agree, this movie was really stressful. I liked it but holy cow I got into it too much and was far too stressed out.

It is a tight, hard-hitting thriller that had me on the edge of my seat throughout the film. There are a couple of especially good moments.
