With the success of other murder mystery docu-series like “Making a Murder” and “O.J.: Made In America” it’s no wonder the fictionalized versions resonate with viewers as well.
Case in point, “The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” and “The Night Of” have left a hole in binge watchers’ hearts. One that will soon be filled by “Amanda Knox”.
The bizarre story of American exchange student Amanda Knox, who was twice convicted and twice acquitted of the brutal killing of her British roommate Meredith Kercher, the Netflix film pieces together the true events surrounding the case.
The film uses present footage along with interviews with Knox herself, then boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, Italian prosecutor Giuliana Mignini and reporter Nick Pisa.
Addressing the viewers, Knox says “if I’m guilty, it means that I am the ultimate figure to fear, because I’m not the obvious one,” putting a spotlight on whether or not she’s a “psychopath in sheep’s clothing.”
“Amanda Knox” will be available on Netflix September 30.
