Movie Review: Dead Man Walking (1995)

Director Tim Robbins makes the definitive film about the death penalty and shows all angles of a controversial topic through an intimate story about a nun (Susan Sarandon) and a death-row murderer (Sean Penn) in Dead Man Walking (A). Both actors give one of the best performances of their careers, and Robbins deftly directs their story without giving anyone easy answers. This is a thought-provoking drama and a reality injection for anyone who sees it.
