How far would you go to save a loved one? Watch the true story of Betty Anne Waters' incredible fight for justice when Conviction comes to DVD on 23rd May 2011 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. With a stellar cast led by two-time Academy Award® winner Hilary Swank, and including Sam Rockwell, Melissa Leo, Juliette Lewis, Peter Gallagher and Minnie Driver, Conviction is an unmissable courtroom battle with a lot of heart.
From director Tony Goldwyn (The Last Kiss) comes the story of Betty Anne's battle with the US justice system in a bid to save her brother from a life sentence. As a high school drop-out, Betty Anne (Swank; Million Dollar Baby, Boys Don't Cry) is a lost soul, balancing her waitressing job with being a single mother.
Her life is flipped upside-down when her brother, Kenny Waters (Rockwell; Moon, Iron Man) is arrested for murder, and Betty's belief and devotion are pushed to the limit when she begins the ultimate fight for his freedom. With the help of her best friend Abra (Driver; Barney's Version, Good Will Hunting), Betty Anne dedicates eighteen long years of her life to graduate with the law degree she will need to represent Kenny's case, and then fight for his release. Trawling through mountains of suspicious evidence collected by small town cop Nancy Taylor (Leo; The Fighter, 21 Grams), Betty Anne begins to piece together the events leading up to her brother's arrest.
Follow Betty's gruelling journey in an effort to prove her brother's innocence, in this incredible story of love, faith and conviction. Guaranteed not to leave a single dry eye in the house, the DVD contains a fascinating conversation with director Tony Goldwyn and the real Betty Ann Waters, as well as a digital copy of the film, making this spectacular tale an emotional must-see, beyond any reasonable doubt.
