TRIAL BY FIRE Trailer Starring Laura Dern

Roadside Attractions has released a new trailer and poster for Trial by Fire, starring Laura Dern and Jack O’Connell. The film is directed by Edward Zwick and tells the true story of a man on death row for the arson that killed his children who may have been wrongfully convicted.

Trial by Fire opens in theaters May 17th.

Trial by Fire is the true-life Texas story of the unlikely bond between an imprisoned death row inmate (Jack O’Connell) and a mother of two from Houston (Laura Dern) who, though facing staggering odds, fights mightily for his freedom. Cameron Todd Willingham, a poor, uneducated heavy metal devotee 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 suppressed evidence that could save him.
