...MARIE is a powerfully made political melodrama....Sissy Spacek adds another excellent characterization to her credits...

Despite a truly remarkable study in Wonder Bread villainy by Jeff Daniels, "Marie: A True Story" is never more than a TV-style docudrama about Fighting Back. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Pay the man, get out of prison. It's a sweet deal for the Tennessee officials who let killers and rapists go free for a price. And who would have the guts to defy the state's power elite? No one, except a courageous single mom named Marie Ragghianti. This gripping film tells the true story of a woman who became head of the Tennessee parole board, then stood up to lies, threats and murder to blow the whistle on her bosses - and send many of them, including the governor, to the pen. Sissy Spacek brings luminous intelligence to the role of Marie, and the remarkable supporting cast includes Morgan Freeman, Jeff Daniels and screen-debuting Fred Thompson (later a Tennessee senator) playing himself, Marie's real-life attorney.

Product Description:

Based on an actual event, "Marie" is the story of a woman who was appointed to head the State Board of Pardons of Tennessee, only to quickly discover that the state government was riddled with graft, corruption and even murder.
