Rectify: No, It's Not Breaking Bad

“From the producers of Breaking Bad” has been tossed around much in advance of the premiere of the Sundance Channel’s new Rectify. This ain’t Breaking Bad. ---

The six-episode Rectify follows a week in the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young), just released after serving 19 years in prison for rape and murder. New DNA evidence got him out of the joint, though it’s still not clear whether he committed the crime or not—naturally, everyone in his small Georgia hometown has a divergent opinion, even those in his own family (including Abigail Spencer as little sis).

Warning: Rectify moves ssslllooowwwly (or, in film critic terms, it’s “meditative”), and Daniel’s guilt or innocence isn’t the point of the story (don’t expect an answer). Think of it as a six-hour indie flick about one man’s trouble readjusting to a world that doesn’t necessarily want him anymore. If you don’t get Sundance, cousin network AMC will be showing tonight’s pilot episode after Mad Men on Sunday—you’ll be instantly hooked, or instantly turned-off.
