Devil’s Knot to open in Little Rock

Devil’s Knot, a film about the case of the men known as the West Memphis Three, will premiere at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 3, at Ron Robinson Theater in downtown Little Rock.

Starting with a personal look at the murders of three young boys in West Memphis, Arkansas, in 1993, Devil’s Knot explores the investigation and trials that followed, as experienced by an investigator and the mother of one of the victims. Directed by Academy Award nominee Atom Egoyan, the movie is based on the nonfiction book by award-winning Arkansas author Mara Leveritt.

The film stars Academy Award winners Reese Witherspoon as Pamela Hobbs, the mother of Stevie Branch, and Colin Firth as Ron Lax, a Memphis private investigator who volunteered his services to the court-appointed defense lawyers. Other cast members include Stephen Moyer, Dane DeHaan, Alessandro Nivola and Amy Ryan.

The Ron Robinson Theater is located at 100 River Market Ave. Doors open at 6 p.m. and general admission tickets are available online at
