Conviction (2010), starring Hilary SWANK and Sam ROCKWELL, dramatizes the true story of Betty Anne Waters—a high school drop-out single mother with two children and a blue-collar job—whose brother, Kenny, was wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. Unable to pay for a competent defense lawyer to appeal Kenny’s case, Betty Anne decided to devote herself to study to become that lawyer. 18 years later, in 2001, Kenny was released!
