You do it or I'll kill you, that's your sister and your lawyer talking

Conviction (2010)
Chosen by me because I go to the cinema a lot also I love Sam Rockwell.

Pretty much does what is says on the tin. It is raised from teevee movie of the week territory by strong performances but has very little to say about it's subject matter. Despite throwing roadblocks in the way (the evidence is missing, a witness realises she could put herself on the line for perjury) it has very little dramatic weight - essentially a woman goes to school to help her brother and that's it. It's worthy and I admire her, ahem, conviction, but it's all rather dull.
