First Look: ‘Conviction’ Trailer

Fresh from Fox Searchlight today is the debut trailer for ‘Conviction’, starring Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell, Juliette Lewis, Minnie Driver and Melissa Leo.  ‘Conviction’ is the true story of Betty Anne Waters, a young woman who “puts herself through high school, college and, finally, law school in an 18-year quest” to free her brother from prison after he is wrongfully convicted.

The film opens nationwide on October 15  and if you can remember way back when,  I forecasted this film to be an Oscar Contender, only back then it was titled ‘Betty Anne Waters.’

After seeing the trailer, I wholeheartedly stand by that forecast. The cast is strong, the story is true (Oscar voters eat that up) and courtroom dramas are rarely ever bad.
