Reversible Errors is a 2004 television film based on the novel of the same name by Scott Turow. It was directed by Mike Robe, who previously directed Scott Turow's The Burden of Proof, and stars Tom Selleck and William H. Macy. Filming was done in and around Halifax, Nova Scotia, and featured shots of Halifax City Hall and Angus L. Macdonald Bridge.

The film was first shown by CBS in two parts on May 23 and 25, 2004.[1][2] Channel 5 in the United Kingdom has chosen to show it as a single 173 minute film.[3]


A young woman and two other people are killed in a Kindle County local bar. Experienced detective sergeant Larry Starczek (Tom Selleck) begins investigation on the murders. Soon everything points to the small time thief Squirell. Larry arrests him and makes the thief confess. After a short trial Squirrel goes to the prison where he'll be executed.

The story now moves seven years later, as new evidence surfaces. Nobody is so sure any more that it was Squirell who actually killed those three people years ago. Furthermore, it seems that the judge from his trial wasn't completely clean.
