Conviction true story trailer online
Hilary Swank is becoming known for her true story starring roles, and this trailer reminds me of the equally heart tugging ones for Freedom Writers. However what surprised me in that film is how good it was, despite the overly manipulative looking trailer, and with Conviction it feels the same.
Yet, just as with Freedom Writers, there's something more there, something that feels like it could be a strong film and the trailer is just concentrating on the heart tugging aspect. Have a look and see for yourself.
Rockwell plays a man convicted of murder, a murder he claims he didn't commit. Swank plays his sister who vows to fight for him as long as he doesn't give up, and over the next eighteen years she puts herself through law school to become a lawyer and defend his case. Remember, it's a true story.
It comes from the actor and director Tony Goldwyn and it does carry a strong cast. What do you think?
