Conviction ~ On DVD/Blu-ray Feb 1st

Be inspired by one woman’s incredible true story of love, loyalty and commitment in CONVICTION on Blu-ray Disc and DVD February 1st from Fox Searchlight Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Based on the real-life journey of Betty Ann Waters, a courageous woman who embarked on an 18-year quest to help clear the name of her 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’).

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.

My husband and I watched our advance copy of Conviction last week.  I told him in the beginning it was based on a true story, which made it all the more frustrating to watch and know the errors that can happen in the justice system.  The movie doesn’t have any action-packed chase scenes, no high-stress courtroom drama, but rather focuses on the relationship between Betty Ann and her bother over the years.  Because I am an emotional preggo, I got teary eyed when the credits were rolling while glancing over at a framed photo of my own boy and girl on the wall.  Family is so important and a movie like this reminds us of the ties that bond in a remarkable way.

I have 2 copies of Conviction on DVD set aside for my readers! To win your own copy of “Conviction” on DVD, simply answer the following question: What is the name of the woman whom Hilary Swank portrays?
