Sharon Stone is a brilliant actress. You feel like you are walking those last few steps with her and holding your breath hoping the phone rings giving her a stay of execution.
One of the best Movies I have watched in a long time.

Sharon Stone, more than makeup and short skirts

"I stumbled across this movie on television recently and was mesmerized by Sharon Stone's performance. Her looks were down-played for her role of death row inmate and what showed through was luminous acting and touching vulnerability. Her character, bred from white trash and convicted of a brutal double murder, brought a new insight into the circumstances surrounding violent crime and the reform found in prison. This movie made me doubt my firm stance in support of capital punishment (and that's not easy to do). Rob Morrow is both sensitive and powerful as the rich kid attorney that finds something to fight for in his defence of this woman. Overall, a moving and tragic movie not to be missed, and definitely notable among other death row dramas for its gender reversal and the new perspective that brings."
See it if you haven't seen dead man walking

"OK, I haven't seen dead man walking, so I'm not as mad as most people who think this is a rip-off of that movie. The movie isn't lame, it isn't very powerfull either, but it still makes a sad compelling movie. Rick chooses his first case, that of Cindy, who was convicted of a double murder. After she, not having close relatives but a brother whose also locked up, isn't intersted of being saved, he thru showing her compassion and caring, she finally realizes that there's so many things for her to do, she didn't want to die, but she didn't want to be locked up in there forever, but after that, she just doesn't want to die. So, I liked the movie, I was surprised by the ending, because it seemed that rick had done so much, but really, it just seemed that way since you get so involved in seeing how he tries so hard to save her. It shows you how some people can really change, and the dilema of having less than 30 days to save someone you've gotten so involved with."
Dead Woman Walking

"Yes, released on the heels of Dead Man Walking, it suffered in comparison. But it does have strong performances by Sharon Stone and Rob Morrow. Other good actors grace the cast list too. It's nice to see Chicago Hope alum Jayne Brook in something else--wish she'd had more to do. Randy Quaid and Peter Gallagher could have been used to better effect. The gender switch makes the prison movie cliches a bit more tolerable."

"Touching social drama about the topic of death penalty with Sharon Stone and Rob Morrow. The fate behind the criminal offense is uncovered. Despite all efforts they don't succeed in averting the execution. The questionableness of the death penalty is shown in all distinctness."
