You've heard from prosecutors and defense attorneys after the trial, now hear from an unbiased third party covering the trial first-hand. Did the filmmakers get it right? Was crucial evidence left out? Were certain "conspiracy themes" a big deal or trumped up for the sake of theatre. 
Angenette has the answers.
