Murder in the First
Petty criminal Henri Young (Kevin Bacon) gets sent to Alcatraz in the 1930s and attempts to escape. As punishment, the assistant warden (Gary Oldman) puts Young in solitary confinement, where the maximum stay is supposed to be 19 days. But Young spends years there, only to emerge a madman and eventual murderer. A rookie lawyer (Christian Slater) tries to save Young from execution by proving that Alcatraz is to blame for his condition.
