Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell bringing Conviction to Blu-ray
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced that CONVICTION, starring Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell and Minnie Driver, will be released on Blu-ray February 1, 2011. The film follows the true life story of Betty Anne Waters, a single mom and high-school drop-out who put herself through law school in order to defend her imprisoned brother who was wrongfully convicted for murder when all of his other options had run out. The film just had a theatrical release last month and Hilary Swank has received great reviews. Rumors have even been swirling that this may be another potential Oscar nomination for her.
I’m not really a fan of Hilary Swank and really have a tough time taking her seriously as an actress because every time I see her I think of her small role in the movie version of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. In it she wears this really ugly yellow pleather jacket and her best line is, “Get out of my facial!” See, now you’re having a tough time taking her seriously too, huh? The only special feature on CONVICTION is a behind-the-scenes interview with the real Betty Anne Waters.
