Watch: Hilary Swank & Sam Rockwell in the Conviction Trailer
Now this is a film I haven't actually heard of before today, but it looks good. Apple has debuted the official trailer for Tony Goldwyn's Conviction, a new Fox Searchlight dramatic legal thriller, based on a true story, starring Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell. It looks like a very intense drama about, well, how screwed up and corrupt our legal system can be, as Swank tries to free her wrongfully imprisoned brother. I don't know if Swank or Rockwell may be awards contenders for this, but it's definitely a possibility. It looks pretty good, a little heavy-handed, but I'll probably catch it in the fall. Take a look below and let us know what you think?
