Based on a true story that shocked the nation in 1965, the film recounts one of the most shocking crimes ever committed against a single victim. Sylvia and Jennie Fae Likens, the two daughters of traveling carnival workers are left for an extended stay at the Indianapolis home of single mother Gertrude Baniszewski and her six children. Times are tough, and Gertrude's financial needs cause her to make this arrangement before realizing how the burden will push her unstable nature to a breaking point. What transpires in the next three months is both riveting and horrific.Written by
This movie just made me very upset. It made it look like Paula and Stephanie Baniszewski was innocent. Reading the true crime reports of all taken place. Both them girls did horrible things to this poor girl. Why should they be portrayed as anything better then what horrible people they are. What this family and the neighborhood children did to this poor child should be fully shown. They should , hold there heads in shame and be haunted by this the rest of their life's. I could not live with myself if I was to have done anything like this .I only hope and pry the children of this family and all the children involved are punished by a higher means. And for Stephanie to clam she was Salvias friend? What kind of friend would allow someone to be treated this way..hogwash! All horrible people, horrible. They all should rot in hell!
