Dead Man Walking

Dead Man Walking ★★★★

I didn't even know Tim Robbins directed until a week ago and this film from him is very impressive. Sean Penn gave a great performance as a man sentenced to death who is visited daily by a devoted Nun (Susan Sharadon),who was also great). It's interesting because the film doesn't seem to try and make us root for either side, if it did it may have seemed to generic and manipulative but it is fittingly effective throughout.
