If this would've been a movie about redemption it would've been a good movie. In other words, if the main character, Paul, would've found a job and been successful at it once he got released from prison it would've been a good movie, as it would've provided hope and been an inspiration for anyone who's ever been in prison but has since turned over (or been trying to turn over) a new leaf. But, unfortunately, that's not the way the story went. I suppose that anyone who likes THE SOPRANOS might like this movie. But I'm sorry. I just can't recommend this movie to anyone.
