This is a 1999 film directed by Scott Hicks, based on David Guterson's award-winning novel of the same title.
It tells a riveting tale of mystery with a sad, heart-wrenching yet powerful love story in both the background and foreground.
A murder trial has upset the quiet community and now this tranquil village has become the center of controversy.
For Ishmael Chambers, a local reporter, the trial strikes a deep emotional chord when he finds his ex-lover is linked to the case.
As he investigates the killing, he uncovers some startling clues that lead him to a shocking discovery.
This is one of the best suspenseful, mind-boggling and thought-provoking movies in the recent years.
How come it didn't win the Oscar best picture?

A beautiful rendition of the book by David Guterson. The defense lawyer's summation is powerful!

Around WWII, a returning Japanese-American soldier is charged with he murder of a white neighbor over land stolen from his father while the Japanese-American family was confined to a concentration camps for Japanese-American citizens living in California. The story portrays the white populace, some prejudiced against the Japanese-Americans, others that know the Japanese-Americans were patriotic. This small film garnered an Oscar nomination for cinematography along with wins for cinematograph at the Chicago, Las Vegas, and Dallas-Fort Worth film festivals.
