A 2 hours sequel documentary to the documentary mini-series THE STAIRCASE (see my review there).
While the mini-series was a court drama, this sequel was an emotional ride. It was truly moving, especially the last third.
This sequel shows bits of the case and bits of scenes from the mini-series, but focuses on what happened after that.
I can't recommend enough the mini-series and this sequel.
If this sequel doesn't move you, you really have a heart of stone.
Watching all those court/crimes documentaries really makes you lose any faith in the justice system. The system is corrupted. You may think it's unusual, but there are SO many innocent people going to jail that something is just wrong (not just in the USA).
