Here’s the Trailer for ‘Devil’s Knot,’ the West Memphis Three Movie Starring Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth
Devil’s Knot, from the Oscar-nominated Atom Egoyan, tells the true story of the West Memphis Three. The infamous case spans nearly two decades after three teenagers were wrongfully convicted for the violent murders of three eight-year-old boys in 1993. The three were released from prison in 2011, after eighteen years in prison.
Devil’s Knot stars Reese Witherspoon as the mother of one of the murdered boys and Colin Firth as an investigator. Stephen Moyer, Amy Ryan, Mireille Enos and Dane DeHaan also have supporting roles. It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival this year (to not-so-great reviews) and is expected to be released sometime next year.
