Documentary on the Friedmans, a seemingly typical, upper-middle-class Jewish family whose world is instantly transformed when the father and his youngest son are arrested and charged with shocking and horrible crimes.
This documentary should be out on DVD for one reason: Paul Tsongas. Tsongas is one of the best candidates for the presidency that didn't make it. Watch him on stage being asked whether he knows the price of a pack of milk. First he laughs out loud and steps out into the audience to shake hands with the man who posed the question, telling him that he asked a 'great question'. Back on stage he offers a price (can't remember) and when the audience starts to laugh adds: "at your friendly grocers?" Tsongas died a few years later. He would have made a great, if somewhat short-lived president. The man who did make it, Bill Clinton, plays a huge part in the documentary, as if the filmmakers knew what they had in hands. Well, of course they did, Clinton being the best natural politician of the last few decades. But Tsongas would have made a better president. No cigars in his Oval Office.
