Although slow at times, this movie is worth seeing for its acting and because it's a powerful and true story.
11 January 1999 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One gets the feeling that the people behind this film truly believed in its story. "Convictions" is the true story of a mother,(Blair Brown) who's son has been murdered 9 years earlier, and her attempt to deal with the bitterness and resentment she harbors as a result of her loss. Told with compassion and understanding, it's worth checking out, especially for those interesting in the healing process.

This film also contains terrific performances from a stong cast, however Blair Brown and Robert Moloney(as son Greg) really shine.
