This French documentary ranks with the best I have seen. . . . The strength of the film is its patient, chronological build-up.
a fascinating story held in a merely so-so package.
An attorney defends an African-American fifteen-year-old accused of the murder of a white tourist.
This documentary is pretty plain-Jane. There aren't many flashy edits or creative story-telling gimmicks. And that's appropriate because the film's subject is compelling on its own. Will the accused Brandon Butler be proven innocent? What are the racial implications of this case? What are Pat McGuinness's strategies throughout the trail?
Overall, for students and critics of the American criminal justice system, this film is required viewing.
The title itself sounds so damn alluring. Add to it that it's an Oscar winning documentary depicting the trial of a 15 year old guy wrongly accused of murdering an old woman. His acquittal was an uphill task since the only witness (old woman's wise husband) in the case had positively identified him as the murderer.
I'd almost forgotten about this movie until some days back. After that, I was way too desperate to check it out. Unfortunately, it wasn't anywhere nearly as interesting as I'd expected. No, I wasn't looking forward for a Sherlock Holmes or a Perry Mason kind of story, but something gotta give. This was......... some things are better left unsaid.
Intriguing doc on the murder case of 15 yr old Brenton Butler, accused of murdering a tourist in Florida. A must see for fans of legal procedures.
Excellent documentary detailing the flaws of "the best legal system in the world".
