Brokedown Palace (1999)


While vacationing in Thailand, two girls meet a young Australian man who promises them an even better time in Hong Kong. One girl wants to go but the other has a bad feeling about it, however they decide to leave anyway but they arrested before they have the chance to get on the plane for smuggling drugs. Now, trapped in a dingy abusive prison, the two girl’s fate lies within the hands of an American lawyer looking to redeem himself. Though I enjoyed the movie, I felt like it lacked in places and was filled up in exposition. The story was very compelling and is one of those cases where it could happen to anybody. The ending was very bitter and made me hate the Thailand justice system, even if the movie exaggerated it a bit.
