This is a 1999 film directed by Scott Hicks, based on David Guterson's award-winning novel of the same title.
It tells a riveting tale of mystery with a sad, heart-wrenching yet powerful love story in both the background and foreground.
A murder trial has upset the quiet community and now this tranquil village has become the center of controversy.
For Ishmael Chambers, a local reporter, the trial strikes a deep emotional chord when he finds his ex-lover is linked to the case.
As he investigates the killing, he uncovers some startling clues that lead him to a shocking discovery.
This is one of the best suspenseful, mind-boggling and thought-provoking movies in the recent years.
How come it didn't win the Oscar best picture?

A beautiful rendition of the book by David Guterson. The defense lawyer's summation is powerful!
