Audience Reviews for The Staircase

Two films mixed up here.

The 2004 & 2006 release dates listed here are for a 6-hour true-crime mini-series titled "The Staircase," directed by Jean-Xavier de Lestrade. The film chronicles the actual mystery murder trial of Durham, North Carolina author Michael Peterson's wife, found dead on the couple's staircase. The original French title for that film is "Soupcons." As of this writing, that film appears to be missing from the Flixster database.

The Barbara Hershey DVD cover and list of actors posted here are all for a 1998 made-4-TV 94-minute film directed by Karen Arthur, also titled "The Staircase."

I've actually reported this incorrect information. TWICE. Eventually someone just punches it off as fixed ... without doing anything ... to get rid of the work queue. Then I get an email saying it's fixed. When it's not. Welcome to the new economy.
