    After seeing the movie Anu Singh must have heaved a sigh of relief. It's very likey not as bad as she might have expected it to be. It's also extremely self righteous which is a put offer in itself. Highly recommend the Casefile podcast episode on this topic. Great example of not needing a million dollars and lots of resources to create a great impact.

    I saw this at the Melbourne International Film Festival and it was utterly terrible. Void of the compelling storyline from the original novel and with even worse acting, I would not recommend anyone see this film.

    This is an incredibly bizarre true crime story - and very disturbing. Maggie Naouri is brilliant at conveying the emerging mental health issues suffered by Anu Singh that leads to her boyfriend's murder. Sacha Joseph, who plays the complicit and enabling friend, is also very good. This was a riveting story that leaves many questions unanswered - perhaps the main failing of the movie. It is very compelling and proves, once again, that truth is often a lot stranger than fiction.
