Her brother was falsely convicted of aggravated murder, and ran out of money for lawyers and appeals,and by that time, he had already served 12 years of his sentence. Bettie spent the next 6 years getting her GED, attending junior college, and finally getting a law degree and passing the bar, so she would be able to have access to the case evidence, and represent her brother.
Of course, this story is about courage, but without the determination she used to not let opinions or obstacles deter her, her brother would still be in jail.
There are times when you HAVE to resolve within yourself, and say to everyone else, "I'll give up when I'm damned good and ready, and not one minute before, if that's okay with you?"
Any college girls out there considering psychology as a major, forget that, become a Lawyer or Legal Assistant. If you take that Meyers/Briggs test and come out an INFP/J take law.
I'm a fan of Hilary Swank and an even bigger fan of movies based on a true story.
The premise of this movie just leaves me speechless.
In the movie the brother gets sent to jail for a crime he didn't commit. Rather than let him sit in jail for life....she goes to law school to become a lawyer so that she can fight to get him out. What a great bond they shared as siblings
It was very cool to see the ups and downs of that decision and the impact it had on her own family life and her social life.
It's a great movie that shows at times our justice system is flawed and mistakes happen.
Would definitely recommend and rent it again to watch
