Not a documentary, not a drama
30 April 2017 | by cjrose-54347See all my reviews

This was neither a documentary nor a drama. If you had no previous knowledge of this sad case, you'd be none the wiser after watching this collection of, frankly opinions and gossip. There was more entertainment value in listening to the auditionees personal life stories. 90 minutes of my life that I'll never get back.
