Convicts, set in 1902 Texas and based on Horton Foote’s “Orphan Home” cycle of plays, is the story of Horace Robedaux (Lukas Haas, Inception), a young man working the land for plantation owner Soll Gautier (Robert Duvall, The Godfather, Apocalypse Now) so that he can raise enough money to pay for a tombstone for his father’s grave. It becomes increasingly clear that Soll’s current mental state may prevent Horace from ever collecting his wages. Mining history, and with a keen ear for dialog, Foote’s screenplay and Peter Masterson’s direction transports the viewer to a bygone era. James Earl Jones (Star Wars), Carlin Glynn (Sixteen Candles) and Starletta DuPois (The Waterdance) are the ensemble cast who vividly bring to life characters of a time and place.
