Conviction Trailer Sees Hilary Swank Fighting For Sam Rockwell
There are many accents that come out of different regions of this great country. There's the southern drawl, the Minnesota nice, and the Valley Girl, but few are as mind-numbingly hard to listen to than that of South Boston. It's hard to imagine that anyone with that inflection can listen to themselves without thinking, "I should really consult a speech therapist." That said, between The Departed, Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River, there are plenty of movies that have used the accent wonderfully. Tony Goldwyn's Conviction will try and reach those ranks.
Apple has premiered the first trailer for the film starring Hillary Swank, Sam Rockwell, Melissa Leo and Minnie Driver, and while the film looks like typical Oscar-bait, it also appears to have gotten some tremendous performances. Based on a true story, Swank plays Betty Anne Waters, a woman who sees her brother get a life sentence for a crime he didn't commit. Instead of just visiting him and trying to find a lawyer who could help him, she decides to go it herself, getting her GED and going to law school so that she can fight for him herself.
Check out the trailer below or in HD over at Apple.
