First Movie Pick
My first pick for a movie is Murder in the First. It stars Kevin Bacon and Christian Slater. Bacon plays Henri Young, a man being held at the prison of Alcatraz. He was sent there after stealing five dollars from a grocery store that doubled as a post office. After being at Alcatraz for some time, Henri tries to escape. The attempt failed, when one of the other guys involved reports it to the guards. After the failed escape he is sent to solitary confinement for three years. When he gets out he kills the man who told the guards about the escape plot. He is then given a court appointed lawyer (Slater), who defends him at the same time, brings the illegal practices at Alcatraz in the public eye.
