In March 2005, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty called for a boycott of the movie. "I certainly will not be viewing that movie, and my advice and encouragement to Ontarians is that they would do the same," he said. "It's an unfortunate development for people to choose to capitalize on a terrible and horrific tragedy." See more »

Karla not a victim...,Narcissistic personality
17 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Disorder is accurately diagnosed by her psychiatrist,well-portrayed by veteran actor Patrick Bauchau.

Laura Prepon is believable and cold as Karla Homolka, who was jailed for killing her sister and conspiring with sexual sadist and psychopath Paul Bernardo. He is odiously portrayed by Misha Collins.

The story itself is horrific,and I believe the writer accurately portrayed Karla as borderline psychotic,yet she has a surface normalcy to society,much the same as Ted Bundy and other psychopaths. She is not a sympathetic character, and Prepon delivers a believable performance.

Overall an interesting study,Misha Collins as Bernard is particularly devoid of conscience and detestable,and it would be impossible to explain why any woman would stay with him for love, unless she was indeed psychotic.
