Did Hilary Swank Disrespect Murdered Woman's Family?

Posted: October 16th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Did Hilary Swank Disrespect Murdered WomanSubmit Comment
In the new movie "Conviction," Hilary Swank portrays real-life Betty Anne Waters, whose brother Kenny (Sam Rockwell) was convicted of murdering a Massachusetts woman, Katharina Brow, in 1980.

Now lawyer Gloria Allred has set up a press conference to express disappointment and anger that Swank and other producers did not show respect or compassion for the family of Brow when they decided not to contact them. Brow's children Melrose and Charles, who are adults, attended the news conference.

Although the murdered women is not at the center of the story, Allred claims that the movie would never have occurred had it not been for Brow. "[The children] should have been asked if they had any questions about the film and they should have been consulted about any portrayal of their mother and her murder," she said. "They should also have been asked if they wished to attend a private screening."

Producers of "Conviction" issued a statement expressing their sympathy for the children of Brow, but noted that filmmakers may be reluctant to talk to people not central to the movie because there may be too many of them to contact and family members may request monetary compensation even though legally there is no obligation. These things could keep the film from getting made.

Meanwhile, the producers set up a private screening for Brow's children. TMZ has learned that both Melrose and Charlie will not be attending.

Question: Do you think the children really believe that they were wronged, or do they simply want to meet Swank and make some money in the process?

Gloria Allred. What a bitch. I kind of felt bad for them but once I read her name it went away quickly.

They probably feel wronged, why else would someone willingly persue meeting Swank?

What is wrong with people. Talk about overly sensitive! A press conference, really, REALLY?

Word of advice, fire your lawyer, hire a therapist.

In other news:

The gas station attendant in a near by BP that Katherine Brow regular filled up at is also pursuing a private showing as he was portrayed in a negative light in the film by having his gas 3 cents higher than neighboring stations.

Thanks to johnny_boy's first comment, my cursor accidentally hovered over the Bing prompt'd name, and it said "Feminist Lawyer." Therefore, this issue is invalid. There is no hope for the children.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Gloria Allred an attention-seeking whore lawyer who only takes cases which will put her face on TV and make her a couple of dollars?

This family has known this movie was being made for a LONG, LONG time now. Only NOW that it's on a 1-way street (headed to theaters) do they chime in?! Oh... looking for a CASH PAYOUT, SILENCE $'s maybe?! This transparent ploy of there's is so obvious, even a Lohan could figure this out!

I'm sorry that the family's relative got murdered but hooking up with Gloria Allred has lost them a LOT of respect and has ironically disrespected their relative. Congratulations Brow family, you've now associated, in people's minds, Katharina Brow with a porn star who f*cked Tiger Woods, I'm sure she's proud of you!

See Hillary,

That's why you make sure to ask for their names when signing autographs. "To Whom It May Concern" just sounds so impersonal and distant.

i think the children were wronged...and also want to meet hilary swank...the producers should have thought about all this before taking somebody else's life and exposing their story to the public...i mean they wouldn't like it if they were in the children's shoes...as for the article's question 'did hilary swank disrespect murdered woman's family'?...does the color of poop sometimes come out green?
