YMMV / Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: It's a TV movie that's trying to be impartial about a case where public opinion is bitterly divided. Those who think Knox is innocent were turned off by how the film played up the importance of the forensics, which have long been questioned by experts. Those who think Knox is guilty were not thrilled by the fact that she was played by a famous actress while everyone else (except for her mother) was played by unknowns. There were also many who were disgusted that any movie was being made about the case when there are still so many questions about what actually happened. (All of which may explain why this has yet to be shown on British TV, even after Lifetime started in the UK.)
