Conviction - DVD Review


Starring Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell, Minnie Driver, Melissa Leo, Peter Gallagher, Juliette Lewis, Loren Dean, Clea DuVall and Karen Young.
Directed by Tony Goldwyn.

Hilary Swank plays Betty Anne Waters in this true story of a woman who put herself through law school in an effort to prove her brother's innocence. It has Oscar-bait written all over it, even though it disappeared quickly and never got the buzz. Truth is, I really enjoyed Sam Rockwell as the brother who is innocent but knows from his poor life choices, it figures he'd end up in prison anyway.
