Fox Searchlight has debuted the first trailer for Conviction, based on the true story of Betty Anne Waters, who ÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã âputs herself through high school, college and, finally, law school in an 18-year questÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ãï¿½ to overturn her brother's murder conviction. Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell, Melissa Leo, and Minnie Driver star under the direction of Tony Goldwyn (The Last Kiss). Check out the trailer after the jump.
Waters' life is a truly fantastic story - the kind that's tailor-made for feel-good cinema. The trailer doesn't convince me that Conviction will escape the cliches of the inspirational true storyÃï¿½ genre, but a really solid cast should help sell it.
