Dead Man Walking

Sister Helen Prejean's 1993 bestseller is the basis for this harrowing account of her life's work'; a spiritual advisor for condemned killers awaiting execution on death row. Susan Sarandon (the Director's wife) contributes a superb, densely layered performance as the good sister, while Sean Penn is memorable as her first 'client'. A very impressive directorial turn by Tim Robbins.
