A simple man. A difficult choice.
Karl Childers is a mentally disabled man who has been in the custody of the state mental hospital since the age of 12 for killing his mother and her lover. Although thoroughly institutionalized, Karl is deemed fit to be released into the outside world.

Slow moving, endearing at times and kinda painful in others. Really a "best and worst of people" kinda movie. If you're into action or fast paced movies, skip it, but otherwise I'd recommend it.
