Storyline Heading
When Betty Anne Waters‘ older brother Kenny is arrested for murder and sentenced to life in prison 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, finally, law school in an 18 year quest to free Kenny. With the help of best friend Abra Rice, Betty Anne pores through suspicious evidence mounted by small town cop Nancy Taylor, meticulously retracing 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.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Conviction can make a case, but nothing in the story or its telling elevates it above that which has already been provided in other, better motion pictures.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The story generates that kind of urgency we feel when a character is obviously right and is up against stupidity and meanness. It delivers.

USA Today Full Review
Good Only partly a courtroom drama, Conviction is a straightforward narrative that unfolds rather predictably. It nonetheless emerges as a potent inspirational story on the strength of its two lead performances.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The true story of Betty Anne Waters (two-time Academy Award® winner Hilary Swank), a seemingly ordinary, working-class woman who embarked on an extraordinary 18-year quest to achieve the impossible when her brother Kenny (Sam Rockwell) was accused of a heinous murder he swore he didn't commit.

Betty Anne was an unemployed high school dropout and a struggling single mom with none of the resources needed to fight a long legal battle. But that didn't stop her. In an act of unwavering faith and devotion, she dedicated her entire life - sacrificing everything else - to freeing Kenny. Putting her fears and doubts aside, she first earned her high school diploma then her college degree. Finally she went to law school and passed the bar exam in two states, focused on representing the brother she had promised in their rough-and-tumble childhood she‘d never abandon.

As Kenny tried to hang on in prison in his increasingly dark world, Betty Anne doggedly followed the shoddy evidence that had put him behind bars, following up on every clue that might possibly hold a key to proving his innocence.
