A powerful prison drama about a man whose weaknesses threaten to have deadly consequences
Only the 4th film I've ever walked out of. Endless exposition. An over-ripe Dickensian version of the poor and rich acted out like a condescending am-dram performance. So long. So boring. So tedious. All delivered with the subtlety of a brick through a window. Simplistic and turgid propaganda disguised as a historical drama.
