Hilary Swank Puts Up An Amazing Performance In Conviction – Delude By Lose DirectionOctober 16th, 2010 - 4:43 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
October 16, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Conviction starring two times Oscar winner Hilary Swank has no problem portraying the role of Betty Anne, the sister of the murder convict. The real life story of Betty Anne waters and her brother Kenneth Waters played by Sam Rockwell is an inspiring story of unshakeable trust of a sister on her brother.
Swank portrays the various emotional layers of her character, where she has determination to fight the case and free Kenny from the wrongful conviction, at times she is delusional, and the treat she poses to her two sons by being too consumed because of her brother’s case and the emotional crisis she falls into as her marriage fails. Sam performance as Kenny the hotheaded guy to that of a depressed convict is striking.
There narration often goes back to the fragmented childhood of Betty and Kenny and the bond they formed because the lack of parents in their life. In spite of being a pretty straightforward narrative director Tony Goldwyn has failed to build up the film. The lack of better construction of the story telling process cuts the riveting effect it could have had on the audience.
Nonetheless the film is likely to appeal to the people because of the basic emotional storyline with stellar performances by the actors mainly Hilary Swank. On Oct’ 15, 2010 both in USA and UK the film is scheduled to hit the screen.
