The Life of David Gale #1: The crime is clear. The truth is not.

The Life of David Gale



Cast:

Kate Winslet - Bitsey Bloom
Kevin Spacey - David Gale
Laura Linney - Constance Harraway

Plot:

A University of Texas professor of philosophy and capital punishment abolitionist, David Gale, is on Death Row convicted of the rape and murder of his best friend, Constance Harraway, who was the leader of the local branch of Death Watch, an organization campaigning against the death penalty. Days before his execution, skeptical journalist Bitsey Bloom is sent by the weekly news magazine where she works to conduct David Gale's final interview.

This is one of my all time FAVORITE films.

It's so scary to think of how a person's life could change from one single finger print...make that...thumb print!

Mine too *nods* I saw it for the first time randomly on a flight to Europe. Being from Texas, I'm surprised I didn't already know something about it, but I sooo loved this film. Kate and Kevin were amazing in it

It's one of those movies that was not widely advertised but one of the best movies I've ever seen!

It's just so sad to think of who else could be in prison because of something like that you know.

Love that quote in the movie.

As a huge fan of Laura and Kate, I remember doing a squeal when I heard they had been cast in a movie together. Love the twist at the end.

That's a great quote!

I agree Nadine, the twist is so good! But so sad. He had to die to prove the point that an innocent man was sent to death row.
