The acting by all of the cast is superb. I would maintain that this movie showcases Timothy Hutton's finest performance ever as Daniel, and Amanda Plummer, Mandy Patinkin and Lindsay Crouse as Daniel's sister, father and mother are equally strong. Ed Asner gives a powerful turn as the Isaacson's defense lawyer Ascher, an intelligent but harried man who knows his case is doomed from the beginning. The soundtrack consists of Paul Robeson's many performances of spirituals, appropriate for the time and the context, and everything feels inexorable to the very end, and yet, somehow, there is light at that end.
Shed any preconceptions you might have that this will convince you of the innocence or guilt of the Rosenbergs in actual history...that's not this movie's agenda. It's about the children and those who love them.
