I don't get how some people are slamming this film as amateur and just
plain bad! I saw it at the Toronto Film Festival and it was one of the
better films I saw. Annette and Ben were BOTH wonderful. Ben portrayed
narcissistic very well and Annette portrayed an elegant sophistication
coupled with utter desperation that was fantastic.
The style of the film was at times pleasantly campy and took on a docu-drama feel with the "interviews" with friends and family. Cloris Leachman was hysterical.
If you go into this film expecting a very historical, totally dramatic telling of the story, you are starting off on the wrong foot.
The film starts with portraying Jean Harris's account of the night in question and finishes with the prosecution's account of what occurred that night. Which is true - who knows? Watch this film with an open mind. It's a trip.
