On September 28th, numerous supporters of the Pennsylvania Innocence Project attended a preview screening of the film “Conviction” at the Ritz 5 Theater in Philadelphia. Conviction stars Hilary Swank, Minnie Driver, Melissa Leo, and Sam Rockwell and is directed by Tony Goldwyn. A trailer for the film can be found here. The film is a moving portrayal of the true story of Betty Anne Waters, whose brother Kenny was wrongfully convicted of a murder he didn’t commit. After Kenny’s conviction, Betty Anne earned her GED and then put herself through college and law school with the intention of freeing her brother. After the screening, Tony Goldwyn, Sam Rockwell, and the real Betty Anne Waters answered audience questions. Tony Goldwyn and Sam Rockwell’s interview on “The 10! Show” can be viewed here.
