Storyline:

After being imprisoned for six years on a grand theft auto charge, Rudy Duncan (Ben Affleck) and his cellmate Nick (James Frain) are finally going to be paroled. After hearing endless stories during his incarceration of Nick’s romantic correspondence to a woman named Ashley he has never met (Charlize Theron), Rudy is looking forward to returning to his family and having a fresh cup of hot chocolate. When Nick is killed during a prison riot, Rudy decides to assume Nick’s identity upon release from prison and meet up with the unknown woman. Burdened with a base knowledge of Nick’s Indian casino employment past, Rudy finds himself in too deep with Ashley’s brother Gabriel (Gary Sinise) and is violently forced to cooperate with a casino robbery that Gabriel and his gang have been planning with Nick in mind.

One review

  • “Are you Ashley?” Ashley (Charlize Theron) nods. “I’m Nick.” That’s the second mistake Rudy Duncan (Ben Affleck) makes. The first is falling for his prison mate’s girl.

    Rudy and Nick (James Frain) are just counting the days until the prison gates open and freedom is theirs. All Nick wants to do is go home, sleep in his own bed and eat his mom’s cooking. Fate has other ideas: Nick is fatally stabbed and when Rudy leaves the penitentiary and spots the angelically beauteous Ashley, who has never seen Nick and who has only communicated with him through numerous passionate letters, he can’t help himself.
