The case of the West Memphis Three murders is so complex that 20 years after the infamous crimes, documentaries — and now a feature film — are still uncovering details. Reese Witherspoon stars in Devil's Knot as the mother of one of three young boys found dead in West Memphis, Arkansas. Soon, eyes are cast on a group of Satan-worshipping teens in the area. Colin Firth shows up as an investigator on the case, and The Killing's Mireille Enos, Dane DeHaan, and True Blood's Stephen Moyer all co-star.
Devil's Knot premiered earlier this year at the Toronto Film Festival, and despite the tepid reception it received, I'm still fascinated enough by the real case to give the film a shot. I'm not sold on Witherspoon yet, but I love DeHaan and Firth. The drama hits cinemas next year, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
