Film review: Fracture with Anthony Hopkins

This is a film review of a crime thriller called "Fracture" with Anthony Hopkins.  My wife and I have watched this three times now and love it.  The dialogue between Hopkins and Gosling both in and out of the court are amazing and worth the price of the film.  The plot is simple: Hopkins shoots his wife and the Gosling (the prosecuting attorney) seeks to prove that he did it.  Hopkins chooses to represent himself and the courtroom scenes are intense.  The plot has a twist at the end that is well worth the wait. The only negative thing would be that there is a romance in the film which seems to drag the main plot along a bit.  An unusual case of over character development in a way. Theological message: your sin will find you out.  No one gets away with anything.
