I loved this film
4 January 2014 | by (Brooklyn, NYC) – See all my reviews

One of the reviewers (from Minneapolis) said "bad choice of casting the leading actress prone to overacting." Nope. Growing in a NY Neapolitan/Sicilian neighborhood, I didn't see her overacting. That's just the way my BFFs were. Dramatic. Passionate. Over the top. I found her performance an honest portrayal. (And laughed at the scene where the cop buys her colorful clothes, b/c everyone in NY, Sicilian or not...wears black.) PS: My family visited Sicily the year this trial took place. I remember the guards w/Uzis both out side the Palace of Justice and in the airport.

And I'd give this movie an 8.5.
