Description: Ashley Judd life heroine, Libby, can be called ideal. She has a strong marriage with a loving and wealthy husband Nick (Bruce Greenwood), on which there is a common child, it is surrounded by good friends and she is really happy. But in a moment that paradise is over because Libby is accused of a crime she did not commit, and her road to truth and justice will be very difficult.
This film I watched a long time, but recently have your opportunity to revise it again, and now I have decided to share their emotions from view. The film, which definitely deserves a high estimation!
The plot of Double jeopardy… So, in the center of the plot, deceived, but the strong woman that just wanted in life that live in a happy family and raise Mattie his son. Suddenly she selected as the first and the second and our heroine goes to prison. Her brutally framed, and later Libby finds out that it was none other than her husband! Faking his own death, and putting the murderer of his charming wife, the bastard disappeared, taking, and money and his son. In fact, why would he do that for me is still a mystery, because judging by the image of a character who has created Ashley Judd, Libby – a smart, attractive and kind young woman, for which the majority of men simply wonder. Probably, it Nicolas just born to be free, and beautiful women interested in him just as beautiful paintings (anyone who watched the movie, hopefully, get the meaning of my words, the painting of Kandinsky really like daub child. God forgive me mockery of the masterpieces of the Great artist).
The actors. Tommy Lee Jones (Jackson County Jail) and Ashley Judd. Even a reference to these two names should add a certain perception of the tape. Here I can only say: amazing!
Atmosphere. At first, it seems to us that the film is just another laced melodrama about the uneasy love and relationships, but he got this idea pluck, showing the harsh reality: everything is not so simple as we would like. With a sinking heart, stress and the desire for revenge nick even more than willing to itself Libby, we see how a normal, loving woman and a caring mother passes a difficult way from the prison to justice, to finally find happiness, she dreamed about. In fact, such a really strong-willed people not so much. Half would have surrendered if, God forbid, of course, to them something like this. In other words, the picture gives us to understand that everything depends on strong intentions and dignity. If you wish, we can achieve anything. Remember the words of one of the prisoners: «you can’t kill one person twice.» I think that was the impetus for action Libby. And, of course, nothing would our heroine was not able, if not Travis Lehman, which (and it’s a great luck!) believed the former an outlaw.
Verdict: «Double jeopardy» – a film that deserves attention. Would recommend to anyone who loves the simple stories and interesting twists development – a maximum of emotions ensured!
