A just about perfect film about a strange real life court case. Every element of the film is brilliantly done. The way in which it presents the facts is very clear and understandable even when it is rather complicated, I was never confused at all because of how they made sure you knew everything . The case is incredibly interesting and the use of flashbacks to illustrate the case are well placed. The movie mostly sticks to the facts of just the case and does not get involved in the family of the case too much but when it does the scenes are also expertly done. The acting is all great especially Ron Silver as the lawyer. The only slight flaw in the film is it talks
