Storyline

The chilling true story of a newly married F.B.I. poster boy assigned to an Appalachian mountain town in Kentucky. There he is drawn into an illicit affair with an impoverished local woman who becomes his star informant. She sees in him her means of escape; instead, it's a ticket to disaster for both of them. This scandal shook the foundations of the nation's top law enforcement agency, ending in the first ever conviction of an F.B.I. Agent for murder.

Goofs

Polygraphs are not used in confessions. Confessions are verbal, then written. If the FBI do use a polygraph they don't have the subject telling a story. There's two responses during a polygraph, and those are "Yes", or "No", nothing more. See more »

Sometimes true stories don't make good movies!
22 March 2020 | by roxmewildSee all my reviews

Cons - true stories don't make for good movies a lot of the time and this is a prime example!

Yes it is a sad story but not enough substance to make a good movie I in fact I found it boring .

Pros- Emilia Clarke I was amazed by her command of a Kentucky accent she put in a superb performance in what was a very mediocre film and if not for her performance I would not have bothered to watch the film to the end as the content was not worthy.

So 5stars is for her and 0 for the film.
