CAST: BRUCE DAVISON, JOSé PéREZ, NATHAN GEORGE

'Good Time' is prison slang. It refers to a reduction in a prisoner’s sentence for good behavior. A prisoner with a 3 year bid can, say, be released on 'good time' after 28 months. In a fight, you might hear someone scream, 'Fuck my good time, I’ll lose it right now, c’mon motherfucker!' It’s language like this that makes Short Eyes such a special and authentic film. It set the bar for our jail scenes."
