Based on the true story of The West Memphis Three, directed by Atom Egoyan and starring Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon.The film follows the 1993 murder and mutilation of three young boys in West Memphis, Arkansas, and the resulting trial of the three teenage boys found guilty of the killings. Firth plays visiting private investigator Ron Lax who leads the defence of the suspected killers. Through his work on the case and conversations with Pam Hobbs (Witherspoon), the mother of one of the dead children, Ron finds there may be more to the deaths than the authorities think, but will it be enough to contend with the beliefs of the small Bible Belt community?
