Based on a True Story
1 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

If this movie were not based on a true story I wouldn't have believed the plot. However, knowing it is base on truth I definitely would recommend watching this for a lazy afternoon movie! This is one truly dysfunctional family, starting with the living arrangements David had with his second wife, her younger sister and Cinammon (the daughter from a previous marriage.)

The character of Cinammon did a great job and made her role very believable. From the start when she confessed to the murder of her step-mother, all the way to the ending.

This is my first review so I am afraid to write too much as I don't want to give away too much information, but I do recommend it, especially for people that love true crime drama's! I hope this review is somewhat helpful.
