If you like courtroom dramas, this is for you!   Based on the much-publicized French murder trial of Jacques Viguier, this French courtroom thriller brings together a man accused of killing his wife and a woman obsessed with proving his innocence.

“Director Antoine Raimbault has somehow crafted a nail-biter of a courthouse thriller with CONVICTION.” – Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

“A captivating portrayal of how French murder trials work — especially the fact that it takes an “intimate conviction” (per the film’s original title) on the part of the jury to condemn the accused, rather than confirming guilt is “beyond a reasonable doubt.”   It’s perhaps this major judicial difference that also makes French trials appear less cinematic than American ones, which is why Raimbault deserves so much credit for turning his feature debut into a first-rate drama that both sticks to the facts and makes them thrilling to watch.” – Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

Language: French (English subtitles)
