Laci Peterson is a pregnant mother to-be. On the eve of Christmas, she disappears. Her husband, Scott Peterson, and her whole family search for Laci. There are no signs of Laci anywhere. Months go on and on, and the media and public start to think that Scott murdered his wife. The Rocha family support Scott and defend him, until Scott's mistress, Amber Frey, holds a press conference admitting that she was having an affair with Scott, while he was married. Scott had told Amber that he was not married. This makes the Rocha family start to doubt Scott's innocence. Laci's mother, Sharon Rocha, always believed Scott to be a PERFECT HUSBAND, but now she doubts that. Finally the Rocha family publicly announces that they are against Scott. In 2003, Laci's body and baby wash up on shore, and she is officially declared to be murdered. The police arrest Scott and the movie ends here. Written by
Disappointment IN MOVIE-MAKING. The over-all movie lacked substance and what did go on was the trash we've already read in the tabloids. I don't know who wrote the film, but I feel like I could have done better myself being I've been following this case/trial since it started.
Just because I'm anal about these types of things, I noticed the fact that the leaves on the trees outside of the courthouse were orange which indicates it was fall when in the movie, it was supposed to be Winter. Also, being from the Bay Area, it was funny because all those news channels do not exist in the Bay Area. (I told you I'm anal about those types of things.)
It would be nice to see a movie made once the trial is completed and a verdict is reached (even though I'm almost 100% sure who's to blame). I'd like to see a film made with all the facts and details. This made for TV movie, had the worst ending I've ever seen. I kept waiting for something more to happen, but no, it concludes with Scott in jail.
