Review: Conviction

not bad at all

Brother and sister from a disfunctional family grow up in constant contact with the law. Little wonder the brother ends up in prison and no surprise his sister thinks he's innocent. The criminal apprenticeship of the siblings is well described by the film. A good film which could have been great but for Hilary Swanks and Minnie Driver who together make an Erin Brokovitch wanna be but both are wall paper characters. Sam Rockwell has great material however and completely saves the film.
