Here is the synopsis for “Stone”:

2010 Chicago International Film FestivalAs parole officer Jack Mabry (Oscar winner Robert De Niro) counts the days toward a quiet retirement, he is asked to review the case of Gerald “Stone” Creeson (Oscar nominee Edward Norton). Stone is in prison for covering up the murder of his grandparents with a fire.

Now eligible for early release, Stone needs to convince Jack he has reformed, but his attempts to influence the older man’s decision have profound and unexpected consequences for them both.

“Stone” skillfully weaves together the parallel journeys of two men grappling with dark impulses as the line between lawman and lawbreaker becomes precariously thin.

Golden Globe winner Frances Conroy also stars as Madylyn – Jack’s devout, long-suffering spouse – while Milla Jovovich delivers a startlingly raw, breakout performance as the sexy, casually amoral woman both men desire.

Here is the movie trailer for “Stone”:

Would I sleep with my husbands parole officer?

I would ONLY DO it if I was GUARANTEED of his release with NO STRINGS ATTACHED. Being from Chicago, it is not what you know but WHO YOU KNOW and the politics. I have seen worse things done that people have gotten away with..

If he were guaranteed a release then I would and I would tell my husband what I did for him/us to finally be able to live our lives. -Monika J. Boyer

Definitely, though I would

Definitely, though I would only do it with my husband’s blessing. I also agree that it would be difficult to gauge whether it would truly be a “no strings attached” deal, but even a shot at having a normal life again would make it worth it.
