McReele

directed by Leah Bonvissuto

 

Stephen Belber’s sharp script follows world-weary Delaware journalist Rick Dayne as he rediscovers his zeal, working for the exoneration of death row inmate Darius McReele from a sixteen-year murder conviction. Darius’ magnetic personality makes him a darling of the lecture circuit, leading to national attention and political viability. When the local Democratic Party taps McReele to challenge the Republican incumbent for his U.S. Senate seat, McReele in turn taps Dayne to be his campaign manager. As questions arise about McReele’s true culpability in the crime for which he has been cleared, Rick’s attempt to salvage his faith in humanity runs up against his all-too-human desire to win at all costs. Dayne’s dilemma will reinforce the lesson all voters forget at their peril this election year: that politicians serve merely as warped reflections of themselves.
