Hilary Swank's 'Conviction' Debuts New Clip


Hilary Swank


A devoted sister refuses to give up though her friend assures her that there is not enough evidence to set his brother free from a murder conviction.

A fresh clip from "Conviction" has been debuted, giving preview to Hilary Swank's Betty Anne Waters who is determined to release her brother from a murder conviction. Confronted by Minnie Driver's Abra Rice who tries to assure her that she would not win the case, Betty Anne refuses to give up and even tells Abra to get out of her house.

Betty's older brother Kenny (Sam Rockwell) is arrested for murder and sentenced to life. Convinced that her brother is innocent, Betty Anne puts herself through high school, college and, finally, law school in an 18 year quest to free Kenny.

With the help of best friend Abra, Betty Anne pours through suspicious evidence mounted by small town cop Nancy Taylor (Melissa Leo), meticulously retracing the steps that led to Kenny's arrest. Belief in her brother and her quest for the truth pushes Betty Anne and her team to uncover the facts and utilize DNA evidence with the hope of exonerating Kenny.

"Conviction" is based on a true story of Betty Anne Waters whose brother was convicted of murdering Katharina Brow in Ayer, Massachusetts, in 1983. Tony Goldwyn works behind the lens for the drama which was premiered at Toronto International Film Festival. It will soon hit limited U.S. theaters on October 15.
