Devil's Knot is a fictionalized version of the 1994 case of three teen boys (known as the West Memphis Three) who were convicted of the tragic murder of three younger boys in what the prosecution believed to be a Satanic ritual. However many other people believed the teens to be innocent publicizing their case and gaining support to raise money for the teen's defense. In this first look Reese Witherspoon is amazingly powerful as the devastated mother of one of the murdered boys. Oscar alert anyone? While the subject clearly means the movie is probably not a happy one, we think it is definitely a one not to be missed. Devil's Knot hits theaters in 2014.
