Stand for what is right and fight for what is true as Dazzler Media release the UK Trailer for Crime Drama, Trial By Fire. The true story of a woman who fights for the freedom of man accused of the killing of his family on the basis of sketchy evidence.
Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond, Courage Under Fire) directs this one starring Laura Dern as the Texan mother fighting against the odds to free Cameron Todd Willingham (Jack O’Connell). An uneducated poor man put on death row accused of killing his family.
Looks a solid film and another film proving Jack O’Connell acting abilities are stellar. Off course we already know Laura Dern is fantastic as ever.
Based on a true story, Trial By Fire shows the unlikely bond between an imprisoned death row inmate and a mother of two from Houston, Texas, who fights for his freedom while facing staggering odds and a seemingly corrupt system.
Cameron Todd Willingham, a poor, uneducated heavy metal fan with a violent streak and a criminal record, is convicted of arson-related triple homicide in 1992. During his 12 years on death row, Elizabeth Gilbert, an improbable ally, uncovers questionable methods and illogical conclusions in his case, and battles with the state to expose buried evidence that could save his life.
With incredible performances from BAFTA winner Jack O’Connell (’71, Starred Up), Oscar winner Laura Dern (Marriage Story, Big Little Lies) and directed by Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond, Courage Under Fire), Trial By Fire is a powerful, uncompromising look at the criminal justice system.
The film also stars Emily Meade, McKinley Belcher III, Chris Coy, Joshua Mikel, Jade Pettyjohn, Jason Douglas, and Jeff Perry.
Dazzler Media presents Trial By Fire on DVD & Digital from 7th December.
