    Amazing and extremely sad at the same time that this story happened during my time. What was done to this family was the most despicable and heartbreaking story that was built on lies by many in power whom had no concern for the real truth.

    A superb movie. And totally factual -- unlike many docudramas (in this movie, they use the court transcript). INCREDIBLE miscarriage of justice -- a modern day Salem witch trial. James Woods is simply outstanding as the defense lawyer.

    James Woods is awesome. Light subject matter. Some quality courtroom drama.

    Very well done, and sickening........Amazing that I remember this news media frenzy story back when they were arrested. It was everywhere. What wasn't everywhere was how it all turned out. Where was the news media frenzy then? Not interesting enough by then? On to the next sensational story? Injustice like this just seems so surreal to me, but it seems to happen over and over. "Justice for all"? "Innocent until proven guilty"? Empty phrases, apparently...
