Red Carpet Diary: Reese Witherspoon explains why true story drama “Devil’s Knot” hits so close to home

1993. West Memphis, Arkansas. Three young boys are murdered.

Based on the true story that gripped the town, director Atom Egoyan’s Devil’s Knot stars Reese Witherspoon as a grieving mother of one of the murdered boys. Having grown up not far from where the crimes took place, Witherspoon felt a special connection to the narrative and the people affected, and took extra care to portray her character with the utmost dignity. The result, we can only imagine, is heartbreaking sincerity.
