Before Canadian filmmaker Atom Egoyan heads to Cannes with his latest “The Captive,” last year’s festival circuit entry “Devil’s Knot” will arrive in theatres, and a couple new clips are here to give you a peek inside the true crime drama.
Assembling a pretty impressive ensemble—Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth, Amy Ryan, Dane DeHaan, Stephen Moyer, Mireille Enos and more—the film tells the dramatic story of the West Memphis Three, the trio of teenagers prosecuted for the murders of young children, a crime they didn’t commit. And for the most part, the film revisits a lot of old ground, particularly if you’ve seen the “Paradise Lost” documentaries. But one avenue it does go down briefly is focusing on another teen suspect, Chris Morgan, played by DeHaan. And in these two clips from the film, you can see why the police showed an interest.
