A documentary that examines the 1989 case of five black and Latino teenagers who were convicted of raping a white woman in Central Park. After having spent between 6 and 13 years each in prison, a serial rapist confessed to the crime.
As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for vampire Edward and her friendship with werewolf Jacob.
I was looking forward to seeing this ( Believe me I hardly ever look forward to watching a TVM ) simply because the director is Nick Gomez a semi regular director of the ultra gritty HBO prison classic OZ . The story starts off with a rather explict scene ( For a TV movie ) of someone being shot dead then a prosecuting attorney discussing male rape so I was all set for a gritty crime thriller
It soon becomes clear that the story is just another one of those " Socially upwardly mobile professional women in peril " type thrillers which you've seen so many times before . As someone else has pointed out it's so darkly lit it's almost impossible to see what's going on half the time . It also becomes clear early on that it's not produced by a cable company like HBO therefore there's strictly enforced guidelines as to what can and cannot be shown on screen - No bad language , no sex and no explicit violence . In other words FINAL JEOPARDY is just another made for television chick flick
