Dead Man Walking
The film “Dead Man Walking” is a film about redemption. The film is
directed by Tim Robbins. Susan Sarandon plays a Nun called Sister Helen
Prejean. She is asked by a convicted murderer to get him a lawyer, and then
later is asked to be his spiritual advisor. The convicted killer is named
Matthew Poncelet, and he is played by Sean Penn. The film is set in the
Angola state penitentiary, in
showed first 75 words of 1081 total
showed last 75 words of 1081 total
of showing both sides of the capitol punishment controversy. I can see how
people think killing someone who has killed is a good thing. It keeps the
person off the streets and from killing again. Though is it really justice?
I still believe that people can be evil, but people can also be cleansed. I
believe this film has a dramatic point, and the purpose is pretty clear to
anyone who may watch it.
