Movie about sister/girlfriend/wife who becomes a lawyer to save brother/boyfriend/husband

Can’t quite remember the name of the film, obviously, that’s why I’m here, but it’s as the title says. It’s a movie about a woman who’s brother/lover is in prison and she puts herself through law school, among other things, to save his life and get him out of prison. I wanna say it came out in the mid to late 90s to early 2000s, but I’m not completely sure. Thanks as always, this website has saved me so many headaches.

  1. How about the movie with Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell called “Conviction” ?
    From IMDB:

    “Conviction” is a simple, dramatic story, told well. Betty Anne (Hilary Swank) puts herself through law school for the sole effort of freeing her innocent brother Kenny (Sam Rockwell) from a life-sentence in prison for murder.”

  2. I was thinking it had Hillary Swank in it, but wasn’t 100% sure. Pretty sure that’s it. Thanks a million!
