Moore plays Brenda Martin in this drama directed by Joe Roth. Martin accuses an unidentified black man of hijacking her car and kidnapping her son, leading to intense investigation of a housing project. Unfortunately for Martin, her story begins to unravel under scrutiny. Co-starring Samuel L. Jackson, Edie Falco, and Ron Eldard.
In terms of the challenges, you’re always trying to approach everything with a certain kind of empathy and compassion for what’s going on in the story. These people are in very extreme and incredibly realistic places. I mean…you see how isolated people are by poverty, and that’s one of the themes that I think is at work in this movie.
