We went to see the new movie starring Hillary Swank, "Conviction". Before seeing the movie I watched Larry King interview both the cast and the true life people of this true story. The premise is a man is convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. His sister who only has a GED decides to get the CONVICTION overturned by getting an undergrad college degree and a Law degree to represent him. The movie is also about the CONVICTION that she possessed on this 18 year journey.
If you are backed against the wall a need a role model that anything is possible, look no further.
I had to constantly remind myself that this is a TRUE story.
Note: This is R rated for the language (F Bombs) that convicts and low life's use.
I give this movie ***1/2 stars (Hillary will be nominated)
