In case you didn’t know: prolific director Michael Winterbottom (In this World, The Trip and many many more...) has made a movie about the Amanda Knox trial.
Well, not really.
The filmmaker stressed that The Face of an Angel really wasn’t about Amanda Knox but instead dealt with the question of why we are "so interested in violence and [...] not more interested in love." Still the crime drama is very much based on Barbie Latza Nadeau's non-fiction book Angel Face: Sex, Murder and the Inside Story of Amanda Knox. Hence expect at least some similarities to the actual trial.
In any case, the movie just gained a good bit of topicality with recent developments...
Kate Beckinsale, Daniel Brühl and Cara Delevingne star.
