Here below a first look at Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell in the movie Betty Anne Waters:
“The movie Betty Ann Waters centers on an unemployed single mother (Hilary Swank) who saw her brother (Sam Rockwell) begin serving a life sentence in 1983 for murder and robbery. Convinced that he was innocent, though she was a high school dropout, she earned a law degree and challenged the conviction with DNA evidence, resulting in her brother being freed in 2001.”
I didn’t know about Betty Anne Waters, that’s a truly inspiring story! The studio wants to promote the film as exploration of the profound bond between a brother and sister – a love so deep, so unequivocal, so complete that it becomes a force that will not be denied or defeated. But i see something more interesting in this story: that working hard and dedication to one’s goal can move mountains! Never give up, work hard to get what you really want!
