The trailer for Face of An Angel, the new drama by Michael Winterbottom (The Trip) about the Amanda Knox case is now available to view.
The film as good as recounts the high profile Italian murder trial, which made global news due to the sadistic nature of the attack and media furore: this was attributed to the fact that one of the accused was an attractive young woman.
As the Guardian explain:
Amanda Knox and her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were accused of sexually assaulting and murdering British student Meredith Kercher – Knox was convicted and served four years of her jail term, acquitted, and again found guilty in a retrial last week.
