Boozer, Skirt chaser, Careless father. You could create your own list of veteran reporter Steve Everett's faults, but right now there isn't time. A San Quentin Death Row prisoner will die at midnight - a man Everett has suddenly realized is innocent.
In his 21st film as director and 41st as star, Clint Eastwood memorably plays Everett in True Crime, a savvy beat-the-clock thriller. Isaiah Washington, Denis Leary, Lisa Gay Hamilton, James Woods, Diane Venora and others populate this suspenseful take that tightens to nerve-frying intensity inter cutting the parallel stories of the inmate and Everetts scramble to save him...and perhaps lift his own life out of the trash heap along the way.
Everett is harried, determined and trying not to self-destruct. And the clock is ticking.
