Manual Jordan (Billy Bob Thornton) has done his time. The parole board has declared him fit for release. But he'd prefer to stay in jail. Manual killed a man. Not even a man, a young kid helping out in a convenience store. Ever since, Abner Easley has stared down at Manual from the wall of his cell, a yellowing newspaper portrait of a young life cut short. Now Manual is out. He is changed, unrecognizable, but he is drawn irresistibly to the city where he committed his crime. What is he looking for? Forgiveness? Redemption?
Looking at the cast for this, i got v excited, but it is very very slow and average, and a bit 'seen it all before'... performance from billy bob, is as always wonderful but this badly executed script and plot doesnt do him justice.
