Storyline

In 1974, the teenager Martha Moxley moves to the high-class area of Belle Haven, Greenwich, Connecticut. On the Mischief Night, eve of Halloween, she was murdered in the backyard of her house and her murder remained unsolved. Twenty-two years later, the writer Mark Fuhrman, who is a former LA detective that has fallen in disgrace for perjury in O.J. Simpson trial and moved to Idaho, decides to investigate the case with his partner Stephen Weeks with the purpose of writing a book. The locals squirm and do not welcome them, but with the support of the retired detective Steve Carroll that was in charge of the investigation in the 70's, they discover the criminal and a net of power and money to cover the murder. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The real identities of several of the protagonists are replaced with pseudonyms in this adaptation. These include: - The Skakel family tutor/supervisor, Ken Littleton (in the film called Morris Banks); - The Moxley's neighbor, briefly suspected of the murder, Ed Hammond (Rob Mathers); - The Skakel family relations whose house several of the Skakel brothers visited that night, the Terrians, including Jimmy Dowdle/Terrian (The Morgans / Larry Morgan); - The family who lived across the street from the Moxleys, the Ix family (the Fosters), in particular Mildred "Cissy" Ix (Constance Foster) and Martha's friend Helen Ix (Charity Foster); - The 11-year old who accompanied Martha and Helen while they listened to music with Michael Skakel in the Lincoln, Geoffrey Byrne (in the film called Paul Joyce, and made a similar age to Martha and Helen/Charity, with whom he "makes out" in the back seat of the Lincoln, contrary to real life events); - Skakel family gardener Franz "Frank" Wittine (Alex Grafton); - Jim McKenzie, a Great Lakes Carbon junior lawyer who "babysits" the Skakel children following the discovery of Martha's body and prior to Rushton Skakel's return (Jackson O'Connor). In addition, the character of Hildy Southerlyn in the film is a fictional device, enabling the introduction of information from several real-life sources. Similarly, Martha's "best friend" Lucy Duke is a fictitious character, probably representing an amalgamation of Christy Kalan, Tory Fuchs and Margie Walker. See more »

Excellent movie
24 November 2002 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I'd heard of the case, but hadn't really paid attention during the whole hoopla of Fuhrman writing the book, Skakel being arrested, etc. However, this movie did an excellent job of detailing Martha, the Skakel brothers, the murder, Mark Fuhrman's involvement and the results of his investigation. I especially liked the flashback scenes with Martha talking about her last summer. The actress who played her literally glowed with life and made it even more poignant that the real Martha was probably like that. It made Martha seem like a real person rather than a victim. I'd definitely recommend watching this.
