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 »
I live in Italy and followed this case closely from the very beginning. I thought I knew the case well, but the movie revealed details and sequences of events that I didn't remember.
Now I am not at all surprised that 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. A shame that Miss Knox will probably not be present in the courtroom, as she has returned to the States.
I'm glad that I watched the movie. It was well done. I would recommend it to anyone who followed the case as closely as I did. It just reconfirmed what I already believed by adding even more detail. That is, whatever her role in the murder, she was there. yep.
