As investigative reporter Ward Jansen and his partner Yardley Acheman chase a sensational, career-making story with the help of Ward's younger brother Jack and sultry death-row groupie Charlotte Bless, the pair tries to prove violent swamp-dweller Hillary Van Wetter was framed for the murder of a corrupt local sheriff.

Trailer, review, review.

Co-written and directed by Lee Daniels, it stars Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, David Oyelowo, John Cusack, and Macy Gray. It's based on a 1995 novel by Pete Dexter.

Although it received mixed reviews and disappointing box office numbers, Kidman was nominated for Golden Globe and SAG awards for her performance.

Currently streaming in the US on Hulu and Kanopy, for rent or sale from the usual places.
