Synopsis

Sisterly love is stretched to the max when feckless good ol' boy Kenny (Sam Rockwell) is banged up for life for the murder of a woman. It's up to his high school drop-out sibling Betty (Hilary Swank) to overturn the case...but first she's got to study the law, uncover new evidence and fight the system. Grey's Anatomy and Dexter director Tony Goldwyn crafts a solid Erin Brockovich-style drama served well by detailed performances from Swank as the never-say-die defender and Rockwell as the suicidal lifer slowly coming apart at the seams. Inspirational stuff, based on a true story.
