Writer(s): Albert Woodfox (novel)
Starring: Mahershala Ali
Synopsis: Solitary is based on a memoir that Albert Woodfox wrote about the 43 years he spent in solitary confinement in Louisiana’s Angola Prison. That is the longest stretch in the U.S. for a kind of incarceration that has roundly been denounced as being inhumane. It amounted to 23 hours in a 6-by-9 foot cell, with an hour a day in a fenced concrete “exercise yard,” but always alone. He drew that sentence following the 1972 murder of a prison guard that he has steadfastly denied committing.
