Mrs. Soffel Movie Review

True stories don't get much steamier. At the turn of the century, a prison warden's uber-religious wife (Keaton) falls in love with a man on death row (Gibson). She helps him and his brother escape, and together the three go on the run, trying to make it to Canada.

Interesting to say the least, but unfortunately, the story isn't altogether accessible. Keaton's priss of a character doesn't really feel like the lovin' type, and Gibson (here, anyway) is too white collar to feel like a real criminal. It's all too well-heeled. Think Witnesswithout the pulp.
