Storyline

In the quiet suburb of Cheshire, Connecticut, Jennifer Petit and her two young daughters were killed in a horrific home invasion; husband and father William Petit was the only one who escaped alive. This gripping film explores the events of that shocking triple homicide that rocked the town and set off a politically charged death-penalty trial. The result is a disturbing revelation of police failures and untold personal dramas that point out the biggest tragedy of all: the crime could have been prevented at many turns. Written by Anonymous

Inordinately Dull
30 March 2020 | by kravenkraneSee all my reviews

Such a revolting and heinous crime completely disserviced by the most lifeless and disjointed documentary.

This long and anticlimactic snoozefest is all over the place, jumping from here to there with no meat in any of the interviews.

This story holds inordinate potential for a stellar and in-depth documentary, but this one falls completely flat.
