"Trial by Fire" is a gripping 2018 drama film directed by Edward Zwick, inspired by David Grann's article. The story follows Cameron Todd Willingham (Jack O'Connell), a man wrongly accused of arson-related murder, and his relentless fight for justice on death row. Laura Dern portrays Elizabeth Gilbert, a playwright who champions his case. The film explores the flaws in the legal system, the power of compassion, and the resilience of the human spirit. While the performances shine, some critics found its approach to storytelling somewhat manipulative. Nevertheless, it's a thought-provoking narrative shedding light on the complexities of the criminal justice system.
