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, AR. 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 Steven Moyer all costar.
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 theaters next year, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
