From Academy Award nominated director Atom Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter), starring Academy Award winner Colin Firth (The Kings Speech) and Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk The Line), comes the feature film Devils Knot, a haunting true mystery about who killed three children in a small town. Devils Knot transports the audience back to a tiny southern town gripped in fear over supposed satanic ritual murders and the trial and conviction of teenagers, Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley Jr., and Jason Baldwin, also known as the West Memphis Three. The defendants, each of them a social outsider, quickly find themselves up against a community crying out for justice, as well as the police who believe the murders were carried out as part of a satanic occult ritual. Colin Firth stars as Ron Lax, a local private investigator, and Reese Witherspoon stars as Pam Hobbs, the mother of one of the murdered boys, who both come to suspect that all is not as it appears and while the police call the crimes satanic the truth may be far scarier.
