Conviction: Not a convincing case Add to ...

  • Country USA
  • Language English

Beware those heartwarming true yarns. Just because some truth is stranger than fiction doesn't necessarily make it better than fiction, more compelling or more dramatic or even more convincing than fiction. And so it is in this case, where a story based on exceptional facts gets converted into an unexceptional movie. In short, Conviction has none - at least, not nearly enough to make us care.
