1563 - Outing Riley
A film like this has it's challenges from the get go to avoid being preachy or speecify, and this film does fall into those traps - it can't help but dip into melodrama from time to time. That being said, it was a hell of a lot better than I thought it would be. He actually got a decent cast together and when he wasn't trying to be too clever for his own good, he made a film that was more or less watchable. This isn't exactly high praise. This isn't a film I'd recommend but I wouldn't discourage you from watching it either. It is what it is.
