Alleged Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Love and faith are put to the ultimate test in this stirring romantic drama set against the landmark Scopes "Monkey Trial" of 1925. Charles Anderson (Nathan West, Miracle) is a talented young reporter engaged to Rose (Ashley Johnson, The Help), who works with him at the Tennessee small town newspaper his late father founded. The "Trial of the Century" brings brilliant adversaries William Jennings Bryan (Fred Thompson, The Genesis Code) and Clarence Darrow (Brian Dennehy, Cocoon) to Charles' hometown. But as the trial unfolds, Charles is caught up in the media circus and becomes torn between his journalistic integrity and impressing his mentor, the colorful Baltimore Sun editor H. L. Menken (Colm Meaney, Star Trek: The Next Generation), who presses him to "make a story" instead of report one.

Review: I don't know what to say about Alleged.  This is a film about a reporter during the infamous Scopes Monkey Trials that has to question his integrity when his editor asks him to sensationalize stories.  Obstensively, the film is just about the moral struggles surrounding some of the people involving the trial and one could figure its a historical film, but then you get the church element involved and you can see what angle the film is obviously pushing.  I'm not much for films that want to push and agenda, rather than historical fact, so this one isn't high up on my list.  If you're a hardcore Christian, this one may be good for you.

The special features on this blu-ray include: Menu option includes Discussion Guide for church and home group study.

Interest Range: Drama
