CON­VIC­TION

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images - (Jonathan Richards)

A heroic true story runs out of steam un­der the light of the bigscreen pro­jec­tor, de­spite a fine cast headed by Hi­lary Swank and Sam Rock­well and an­chored by some ter­rific un­der­card per­for­mances from Melissa Leo and Juli­ette Lewis. With the out­come of the court de­ci­sion at the cen­ter of this story al­ready in the books, there’s no sus­pense; the movie has to work hard at all its mo­ments, be­cause we know where it’s go­ing. But, come to think of it, much the same can be said of life. Rated R. 107 min­utes. Re­gal DeVargas, Santa Fe.
