Storyline

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 Gregory Marshall Smith

A true story told accurately
28 April 2012 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The film faithfully reproduces very well what happened to Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, and to the whole investigation. This was the purpose of the film, and this goal has been achieved. It is not a film to be re-made, or to be burned up. Maybe, the only inaccuracy in the film, for me was that Raffaele Sollecito has never said that Amanda had gone out the night of the murder, he only stated that he had smoked a joint that night, after seeing a movie ,and has confused memories,but for what he remembered Amanda had never left his house We recommend viewing, because it is interesting and well done. Very nice interpretation of Hayden Panettiere (Amanda)
