So I watched Conviction the other day (not a new release) which stars Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell. Based on a true story, it’s about a guy who is wrongly accused for murder and sentenced to life in 1983. His sister spends every moment trying to do what she can to get him out so she ends up going to law school and being her brother’s lawyer.
I liked the movie because it highlights the possible mistakes and misuse of authority in the legal system. People do get wrongly accused and it shows that its not a perfect system and because of this we should handle the system with extra caution.
I also liked how Hilary Swanks character devoted herself to proving her brother’s innocence. Seeing their close relationship in the movie made me reflect on my personal relationships. Life doesn’t guarantee certainty, and you never know where your path will lead you, so it’s always good to mend broken relations and/or continue to appreciate loved ones.
