When popular and beautiful cheerleader Stacey is stabbed to death, who could have done it? It could have been asocial Goth girl Monica, it could've been angst-ridden Jill - or maybe it was the plain girl nobody suspected.
Update: On Oct. 3, 2011, Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were acquitted of murder on appeal in Italy. DNA experts determined the DNA on the so-called murder weapon was actually from bread crumbs (as in victim Meredith Kercher handling the bread and some crumbs ending up on the knife). Knox's conviction for slandering Diya Lumumba was upheld, though evidence came out that Knox had implicated the bar owner after 50 hours of interrogation without a lawyer present. As of Oct. 3, 2011, Knox's parents still face trial for slander for accusing Italian police of brutality and intimidation. Written by

On March 26, 2013, Italy's highest criminal court overturned the acquittal of Knox in the murder of her British roommate and ordered a new trial. If she does not return to Italy for the trial, she will be tried in absentia. See more »
The problem I have with this movie is that the story is entirely one sided, presenting only the view of the prosecutor's team.
And anyone over the age of 2 should know that there's always at least two sides to a story. It leaves me with the feeling that this was a rush job, more geared to capitalize on the immediate media frenzy to capture audience, than to present the truth; and that is very indefensible, as this film deals with a true story, not a fictional Hollywood script.
For the love of God, didn't the producers of this film know that the victim as well as the accused were/are real people, some fighting for their very lives? Shouldn't they at least have tried to get a rounded version of the story down? Instead, they simple took the story provided by a man (Mignini) that has been proved since to be more than a little bit unhinged.
It's a lot easier to get audience with story of sex, demonic rituals, violence and death, than it is with one of questionable law enforcement and plain lunatic characters.
