A clip from director Tony Goldwyn's (The Last Kiss) new movie, Conviction (formerly Betty Anne Waters), has been released and it’s a tension-filled scene that showcases the talents of Academy Award-winner Hilary Swank. The movie is based on the incredible true story of Betty Anne Waters (played by Swank), a single mother who spent a decade putting herself through college and law school in the hopes of overturning her brother's (played by Sam Rockwell) murder conviction.
In this scene, Swank's friend from law school, Abra Rice (Minnie Driver), confronts her with some difficult questions about the missing evidence that could clear—or condemn—her brother.
Melissa Leo and Juliette Lewis also star.
