Life of David Gale, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Deeply cynical, politically charged thriller about an outspoken college professor and adamant capital punishment abolitionist (Kevin Spacey) who faces imminent execution for the brutal murder of a fellow activist while a brash young journalist (Kate Winslet) pursues the truth behind the accusations. Directed by Alan Parker, the film's stance against capital punishment is perverted by a twisted ending that ignores human dignity and rationalizes self-destruction with an end-justifies-the-means mentality. A graphic depiction of a murder with nudity, a few sexual encounters, and recurring crude language and profanities. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
