First Look: Reese Witherspoon & Colin Firth In “Devil’s Knot,” About The West Memphis Three

First Look: Reese Witherspoon & Colin Firth In "Devil's Knot," About The West Memphis Three
Definitely Not A Rom-Com

It doesn’t yet have a release date, but allow me to make a prediction about the upcoming Atom Egoyan film ”Devil’s Knot,” about the now infamous West Memphis Three murder case — stars Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth will be on the short list of possible Oscar nominees. “Devil’s Knot” is based on the true events surrounding the West Memphis Three case, in which three teens were convicted of the murder of three children in the early-’90s in West Memphis, Arkansas, despite copious evidence that they were innocent. The young men, now adults, long maintained their innocence, but did not see have their convictions overturned and were not released from jail until 2011. I lovvvve Reese Witherspoon as a dramatic actress, especially when she has such fantastic material to work with. And director Atom Egoyan — who’s done a string of strange but genius movies — is an interesting choice to helm the film, but that makes me all the more interested in seeing it. As for Colin Firth? Bonus! Check out the trailer above. [NYMag.com]
