The season's buzziest films from 'Attila' to 'Zero'
14. "Devil's Knot"
Director: Atom Egoyan
Stars: Reese Witherspoon, Dane DeHaan, Alessandro Nivola, Colin Firth, Stephen Moyer, Martin Henderson, Amy Ryan, Bruce Greenwood
Why we're excited: Egoyan, a Canadian treasure at this point, returns to Toronto with a drama based on the lives of the "West Memphis Three." The subject of numerous documentaries, the "Memphis Three" were three teenagers falsely convicted of killing three young boys in 1993. 18 years later they finally walked free. The film's pedigree and intriguing cast make it a possible late entry in the Oscar race (maybe).
