Here is the plot description for “Conviction”:

“Conviction” is the inspirational true story of a sister’s unwavering devotion to her brother. When Betty Anne Waters’ (two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank) older brother, Kenny (Sam Rockwell), is arrested for murder and sentenced to life in 1983, Betty Anne (a Massachusetts wife and mother of two) dedicates her life to overturning the murder conviction.

Convinced that her brother is innocent, Betty Anne puts herself through high school, college and law school in an 18-year quest to free Kenny.

With the help of best friend Abra Rice (Academy Award nominee Minnie Driver), Betty Anne pours through suspicious evidence mounted by small-town cop Nancy Taylor (Academy Award nominee Melissa Leo). She meticulously retraces 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.

The movie trailer for “Conviction” can be watched now below.

OMG

Jackass 3D or Conviction?? I think that there is a decisive audience for each screening. Anyway, I would exhaust all financial resources and not rest until my family was exonerated. Then I’d sue their asses for wrongful conviction!!!!

I would like to think I would do as much as possible for any family member in trouble. That’s what family members do…..A no brainer.

    CHICAGO – Cinemax’s ominous new series “The Knick” is a hospital drama that’s very much in the voice of its director, Steven Soderbergh. Set in New York City at the turn of the 20th century, the series presents the medical world as it inches closer and closer to modernity, while making contemporary parallels to the desperate hustle by surgery room clients and their doctors alike regarding treatment of the human body. What has changed in the politics of medicine? What hasn’t?
