Chris Evans (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) plays a dad who comes to the defense of his 14-year-old son when he is accused of murder in Defending Jacob.Toruk's Take
So, I was curious about this story and whether or not it was actually a good one so I read the novel’s plot on Wikipedia.
Ugh, no thanks. Huge pass.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve seen more than enough of a certain type of person portrayed as the devil incarnate to last several decades. The nature of this story also explains what drew someone like Chris Evans to the role.
Oh Hollywood, they need to start playing a new tune.
Defending Jacob streams on Apple TV+ April 24.
