Movie Info

Based on Mark Fuhrman's crime novel, Murder in Greenwich is a made-for-TV movie originally broadcast on the USA cable network. A young girl named Martha Moxley was found murdered in Greenwich, CT, on October 30, 1975. In 1997, Fuhrman (Christopher Meloni) tried to investigate the much-publicized case in order to write a book. He encountered problems from the town's wealthy elite who wished to keep the issue covered up. The story is given a beyond-the-grave narration by the unfortunate victim Martha (Maggie Grace). The main murder suspects are Tommy (Toby Moore) and Michael Skakel (Jon Foster), nephews of Ethel Kennedy.more

Critic Reviews for Dominick Dunne Presents: Murder in Greenwich

All Critics (3)

A movie that manages to be mindless, aimless and boring with an effortless consistency.

Full Review… | March 31, 2004

Though [Robert] Forster doesn't have much to do here, he nevertheless manages to create a character that's far more intriguing than the central storyline.

Audience Reviews for Dominick Dunne Presents: Murder in Greenwich

Not a bad film and you have to remember it's based on a true story and so the storyline isn't going to stray far from the truth.

The makers of the film chose the actress playing the killed girl to narrate the story, which I found a bit bizarre and a bit unnecesary. Perhaps people who know about the case would find the film pretty interesting, however it was just watchable to me

Super Reviewer

I didn't know anything about this case prior to seeing this movie, so it was interesting to learn about. There were some aspects about it that could have been better - the acting for one - but all in all, it was fairly entertaining.

Erin Collins

Super Reviewer

"Murder in Greenwich" is a crime drama with a dragging pace. It aims to be suspenseful but even then, the deliverance of the tension somehow lacks substance. Overall, if you're looking for a crime drama with a high standard, this ain't it. It is a crime drama but it looks like a made-for-TV movie taken out of Hallmark Channel, with a down-to-earth nuance throughout the entire duration.
