The love and devotion of siblings are at the core of Conviction. The story of a man, Kenny Waters, who is wrongly incarcerated for murder, and the work of his sister Betty Ann to free him, is told well in this film. Based on real events, this film tells the story quietly and methodically. Betty Ann becomes a lawyer to work to get her brother free. The film spans a time frame of over 40 years, which is conveyed well through clothing, hairstyles and technology. Well structured and well acted, we grow close to the characters and the situation as the events unfold. A good film about a compelling story.
