On February 1st, 2011, Conviction was released by Fox Searchlight Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment on DVD and Blu-ray.  If you haven’t experienced this unbelievable true story, you should check it out as soon as you get the chance.  You’ll be amazed by one woman’s unwavering courage in her fight for justice and for her brother’s freedom.  You can purchase Conviction online and in stores, retailing for $29.98 (DVD) and $39.99 (Blu-ray).

SYNOPSIS:

Be inspired by one woman’s incredible true story of love, loyalty and commitment in Conviction.  Based on the real-life journey of Betty Anne Waters, a courageous woman who embarked on an 18-year quest to help clear the name of wrongly-accused brother and win back his freedom, Conviction features an all-star and award worthy cast including two time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby, Amelia), Sam Rockwell (Gentlemen Broncos, Matchstick Men), Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting, GoldenEye), Juliette Lewis (Whip It, Natural Born Killers) and Peter Gallagher (TV’s “The OC”) and directed by Tony Goldwyn with an original screenplay by Pamela Gray.

Without a dime but armed with a strong will and an unwavering devotion, this high-school drop-out and working mother (Swank) earns her high school diploma and puts herself through law school in an effort to represent her brother (Sam Rockwell) and set the record straight.  Convicted of murder, he has exhausted his chances to appeal his conviction through public defenders and needs a miracle.

Featuring a behind-the-scenes interview with the real Betty Anne Water, Conviction is available on both Blu-ray and DVD for the suggested retail prices of $39.99 US/ $49.98 Canada and $29.98 US/ $42.98 Canada.
