I am not a movie buff by any stretch of the imagination. I rather READ!! But.. when I hear that there is a great family movie going to be released I stand in line at the theater to support it. The only time I go to the theater, I typically wait a few years for it to be on Netflix (I am cheap!). Based on a true story this movie looks to be full of suspense, intrique and as typical in family friendly films, REDEMPTION. Here is just a quick blurb of the movie to come out in February 2012 so be sure to look for it, and get in that movie theater line!
Steve Talley and Academy Award nominee Eric Roberts star in Deadline, the story of the murder of an African American youth in rural Alabama that has gone uninvestigated, unsolved and unpunished for almost twenty years. But that changes when Nashville Times reporter Matt Harper meets an idealistic young blueblood bent on discovering the truth. Harper undertakes the investigation despite the opposition of his publisher, violent threats from mysterious forces, a break-up with his fiancée and his father's cancer diagnosis. Deadline is a story of murder, family, race, and of redemption — for a small Southern town and for Matt Harper.
Inspired by a true story, Deadline is adapted from Mark Ethridge's novel Grievances. Ethridge is a former managing editor of The Charlotte Observer. Deadline will be released in theaters nationwide in 2012.
"Mark Ethridge has captured the South in a way that is every bit as evocative as Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and he has told a story as riveting as the best Grisham courtroom thriller. But Grievances is no mere thriller. It is a story of the heart that will resonate with readers long after they have turned the final page."
