Watch if you want to know this case
28 March 2019 | by jasminhegmannSee all my reviews

If you are just watching to see a action loaded spare time filler- you came to the wrong place. This is for people who want to know more, or get to know this case. What happened to Gypsy is a tragedy and every scene and build up is necessary to truly understand the weight of this crime and how it came to the murder. It is pretty intense, but worth every minute...

All the actors are well chosen and nail their parts. (Gypsys voice is spot on). I personally am happy to see Robb in this production, since she lay low with her acting career for a while. With this part she is back better than ever, and I think she is most gifted to play dramatic roles.
