Not very true
26 August 2006 | by coastdaSee all my reviews

The ACTUAL story about Sonia Jacobs is radically different. Anyone wishing to slop through 2000 pages of transcripts is welcome to do so or if you want the budget version Google "The Exonerated," the play which came after this movie and the names of the men murdered...Phillip Black and Donald Irwin.

The real Sunny Jacobs plead no contest to two counts of Murder 2 to avoid spending the rest of her life in prison. She had a significant criminal history before the crime and her boyfriend, Jesse Tafero, who was executed was a heavy duty ex-con.

The guns used to kill the trooper and his unarmed Canadian ride-along were purchased and registered to...Sonia Jacobs, a wealthy young woman from a family of privilege.

Film-makers, even ones who are close personal friends of their protagonists, get to take SOME artistic license, but this one can only be described as an alternate reality.
