'Conviction' trailer: Hilary Swank goes to law school (video)

Fri Jun 18, 2010 @ 11:03AM PST

Coming in October: Hilary Swank is the real-life Betty Anne Waters, who spent 18 years (including three in law school) trying to free her brother from jail on a murder conviction. Peter Gallagher plays Barry Scheck (of O.J. Simpson trial fame), the DNA expert who joins the cause. Cool courtroom theatrics.
