So I was channel surfing the other day and came upon a movie with Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling called Fracture. I was immediately sucked into the movie due to the fact that I love Ryan Gosling and any movie starring Anthony Hopkins is usually a really good movie. This movie was made in 2007 and I have never heard of it before but it is definitely a thriller from the get go. IMDB describes the movie as “An attorney intent on climbing the career ladder toward success, finds an unlikely opponent in a manipulative criminal he’s trying to prosecute”(IMDB.com).
The plot of the movie is that Anthony Hopkins is a brilliant engineer, charged with attempted murder of his wife who is currently in a coma. Ryan Gosling is the state appointed prosecutor who is up against Hopkins who decides to defend himself. As the movie unravels Gosling begins to question if Hopkins is guilty and is torn with his duty to prosecute and his doubts of whether Hopkins is a murderer or a victim.
I highly recommend this movie it is an old one but a good one. If you are a fan of Ryan Gosling and Anthony Hopkins you will enjoy this movie. There are a lot of really good twists and turns and it keeps you guessing till the end.
