Academy Award winners Colin Firth (The King's Speech, 2010) and Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line, 2005) lead an all-star cast in this gripping, heart-wrenching true story that shocked the nation. May 5, 1993. West Memphis, Arkansas. Three young boys playing in the nearby woods never come home for dinner. In the rush to find and convict the killers, police focus on a trio of teenagers suspected of devil worship. As the mother of one of the murdered boys (Witherspoon) tries to come to grips with this unspeakable tragedy, she is desperate to believe that the killers have been found and will be brought to justice. It is only when an investigator (Firth) reveals that the evidence doesn't all add up, that the community is forced to face the reality that the true killer might still be out there.

Metacritic Score

  • 48

    Film.com Calum Marsh

    Rather than thrilling, the courtroom sequences seem only enervating, nudging us toward a quiet outrage.

  • 25

    The Playlist Kevin Jagernauth

    Devil's Knot lacks potency or a compelling narrative reason why anyone remotely familiar with the case needs to be watching it.

  • 20

    The Guardian Catherine Shoard

    It reduces a complex and extraordinary case to soap. It makes you care less, for all its heavy-breathing and cheapo coaxing.
