Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Find Me Guilty's script, reportedly based on actual, unwieldy transcripts, lacks shape, instead delivering a series of disjointed scenes and occasional punch-lines to jokes that aren't very funny. The film's distractions include stilted dialogue, a perversely immobile camera (this from the director, Sidney Lumet, who made the riveting Dog Day Afternoon), and odd show-stopping events). Crowds of defendants fill shots but such images do little to build individual characterizations.

The only woman in sight (aside from Jackie's very loyal and mostly mute daughter) is Jackie's ex, who comes to see him in prison on news that his mother has died (off screen). During her brief and difficult scene (Jackie tries to seduce her in the visiting room), Annabella Sciorra brings a subtlety and intelligence mostly missing from the rest of the film.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
