The true story of Derek Bentley (Christopher Eccleston), hanged, aged 19, in the 1950s after a controversial decision holding him responsible for the murder of a police officer. Despite a history of mental illness, and with the court accepting that he did not actually pull the trigger, Bentley was still sentenced to death - on the basis that his ambiguous cry of ’let him have it!’ caused his young accomplice to fire the fatal shot. The release of this film focused attention on the case once more, and Bentley eventually received a posthumous pardon.

This film is a great resource to find out what happened to Derek Bentley when he was accused for a crime that he did not do. I don't usually like films like that and know I am glad that I have watched it and it made think about how the justice system in the 50s worked. Also it does have a great effect on a lot of people because everyone that I know who have watched it says it was a great film. I wished that I had bought a copy of this film so I could watch over and over again.
