Effective Thriller, better than expected

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is a film done on a small scale but it works mainly due to the strong performances by Yancy Butler and William Forsythe. I can't say much about the story without spoiling the movie - I can say it centers around a murder trial and the jury that must decide the fate of the accused. Slowly, thing start happening while the jury deliberates. Its a very interesting film. Its worth a look."
3 1/2 Stars - A Unique And Engaging Little Thriller

(3 out of 5 stars)
""The Last Letter" opens up after the arguements in a serial murder case have wrapped up and the jury deliberations begin. The facts seem cut and dried, and eleven jurors are convinced of the accused's guilt, but there's one holdout, and he sets out to change the others's minds. With the exception of some flashback scenes showing how the various murders are presumed to have been committed, the whole thing takes place in the jury room, in real time. I was impressed how they managed to keep the whole thing fresh, tense and engaging within those constraints. The subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) clashes between different personalities within the jury room is handled well. The flashback-to-the-murder scenes are the least potent parts of the movie, but they carry through the information on the murder theories that they're intended to. There are a couple of times where the turns of events in the jury room don't ring true, other times the twists and revelations are highly effective. At times it's pretty rough around the edges, but all in all, it's a unique and satisfying suspense movie."
