Trivia Damien Echols spent the last ten years of his imprisonment in solitary confinement. See more »
Goofs Pam and her husband Terry drive up to the dead end road where all the first responders are gathered, to find out the news that they have found the dead bodies of the 3 missing boys. There are 2 actors walking right behind Pam (Reese Witherspoon) as she is walking up the police, then standing right behind her when she hears the news. Upon hearing the news that her son's body was found, Pam faints and the man and women standing behind her catch her and help her to the ground. But a split second before Pam falls to the ground, the male actor on the left braces for her fall and puts his hand on Pam's (Reese's) back to help her, before she actually falls. See more »
