An incredibly moving story that sheds much needed light on flaws in our legal system
29 July 2017 | by cultflixSee all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to see True Conviction at the Traverse City Film Festival, and I am very glad I did. From beginning to end I was held captive by this amazing story of three men who were exonerated for the crimes that had kept them in prison for a combined total of 60 years and now dedicate their lives to getting individuals in similar situations free from their sentences. . The director and camera man spent 5 years following the men, in the process capturing some amazing footage and producing a final cut that will/should elicit an emotional response from nearly everyone who sees it.
