The first feature film about the notorious 1993 West Memphis murders is presented in a potently human manner by the ingenious Atom Egoyan (ADORATION). Depicting the lynch-mob fever that grips a small tightly knit community, the film demonstrates the potentially lethal consequences that flow as a result of a myopic prosecution combined with botched investigative work. The film made its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and its cast includes Reese Witherspoon (LEGALLY BLONDE), Colin Firth (THE KING’S SPEECH) and Canadian stars Bruce Greenwood (THE SWEET HEREAFTER) and Elias Koteas (ARARAT).
