Real life mystery
26 March 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Innocent until pressured into pleading guilty? Or something to that effect ... well something this documentary shines a light on. And it is an interesting premise. Individuals and how it all came to become a story worth making a documentary about. Mistakes during trial do happen everywhere, but this is just a whole different level.

The interviews are good and the structure is neat too. It all works fine with the timeline and with suspension the movie builds up to. If you like real life story drama, then this will be right up your alley. It's not trying to show off too much, so be aware of that
