This is a film based off of a true story. I didn't know what to expect but I was pleasently surprised. While I would classify it as a comedy it is a little light on the comedy and mostly a bio pic. The man it is about is named Mark Whitacre. FBI informant who lost his immunity and was convicted and sentenced longer than any one else in the investigation. The movie leaves it for those to decide if he was a hero put out to dry or a man who collapsed under the weight of his own greed. Worth a gander.
