When Lost Souls Collide...
Laurel-Rain Snow "Rain" | Fresno, California | 11/23/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When writer Beverly Lowry suffers a crushing depression following the tragic hit-and-run death of her son, she turns inward. In the aftermath, however, even as she sustains herself by enshrining her lost son by never touching or removing his possessions, she slowly begins to enlarge her world, bit by bit, as she studies news articles about a death-row inmate whose story intrigues her.

Meeting for the first time and separated by the plexiglass divider, the two women appear to be divided also by their values, goals, needs and life experiences. How can two such women find common ground? But unexpectedly, a bond develops - at first tentatively - as Beverly continues to visit Karla Faye Tucker and learns her story. Probing the psyche of a drug-addicted woman driven by the overwhelming need of that desire somehow shines a light for Beverly on the darkness of the human condition, a place she has become familiar with in the months following her son's death.

Then Beverly finds a purpose, as she seeks to gain some kind of clemency for the inmate. She makes appeals to all the authorities, hoping to commute the sentence to life imprisonment rather than death.

Throughout their quest for redemption, the two women share and grow and help each other heal, even as the outcome for a change in Karla Faye's sentence seems unlikely.

Diane Keaton shines as Beverly Lowry, while Jennifer Jason Leigh's performance as the doomed death-row inmate lends sympathy to the character.

Based on a true story,Crossed Over is an unforgettable movie.
