    "Conviction" - The Tear-Jerker That Could Have Been

    For a movie that features Hilary Swank crying a lot, "Conviction" doesn't really give its audience much to weep about. It's a fairly drama-less drama, similar to "Secretariat" in the way its plot direction is expected and possibly foreknown more than merely predictable. And there aren't a whole lot of steep climbs or drops in the narrative to create tension or emotionality for the viewer. Yes, Swank and Rockwell -- and in very, very minor roles, Melissa Leo and Juliette Lewis -- give unsurprisingly good performances. But there could have been more (a lot more, as I'll explain later).

    film review: Conviction

    I know, I know: this sounds like TV-movie fodder. But Conviction isn’t a formulaic feel-good saga. It is based on a true story that takes many unexpected turns, and I found it quite moving. Hilary Swank plays a working-class Massachusetts woman in the 1980s who vows to go back to school and earn a l...
