Synopsis


Steel Toes
Academy award nominee David Strathairn stars in co-directors David Gow and Mark Adam's fiery tale of a Jewish, court appointed lawyer assigned the task of defending a murderous neo-Nazi skinhead. David Dunkleman (Strathairn) is a Jewish liberal humanist and a lawyer who works for the court system. Mike Downey (Andrew Walker) is a fierce member of the Aryan brotherhood who stands accused of a brutal, racially motivated murder. Now, behind prison walls, these two disparate souls will clash in the ultimate struggle of ideology as Dunkleman boldly attempts top put his professional beliefs before his personal beliefs, and his client clings to the hate that now threatens to consume both men from the inside out . ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    The acting is outstanding. Set design is minimal--most of the movie takes place in a prison cell. Steel Toes follows the story of a skinhead arrested for the murder of an Indian restaurant worker. The movie concentrates on how his court-appointed attorney, a Jewish man, has to break through his own hatred for the skinhead in order to reach him and represent him effectively. While I liked the movie, I nonetheless had the sense throughout that it would work much better as a play. In fact, because of the minimal set design and the superb script, it felt more like a filmed play than a movie. Recommended.
