* CaliforniaDoubling: Subverted; although the movie really was mostly filmed in Italy, the producers were denied permission to shoot in Perugia [[CaptainObvious for obvious reasons]] - it was filmed in Rome, and hence the scene of Rudy Guede being arrested in Germany is this trope played straight (as are, presumably, the US-shot scenes in Seattle).

* PlayingAgainstType: Although she's played females who've been accused of murder before [[GuidingLight at least]] [[LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit twice]][[spoiler: though in those cases her characters definitely did it, and in at least one case there were extenuating circumstances]], for those who've only seen or can only ever see Creator/HaydenPanettiere as the cheerleader from ''Heroes'', it's a surprise.

The film has been criticised by people on the sides of both Knox and Kercher, with Knox's lawyers trying (and failing) to keep the film from airing on Lifetime and attempting to block its airing on Italian television, and Kercher's parents expressing distress over the film's portrayal of their daughter's murder; those involved with the movie have stated a desire to present the story as impartially as possible, and indeed some criticised Panettiere's performance for not making Knox crystal clear one way or the other. (On the other hand, the movie has gotten several good reviews for its acting - business as usual for Panettiere and Harden, but somewhat unusual for a LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek.)
