A couple of interesting new trailers dropped today for Netflix’s upcoming Amanda Knox documentary, which is released on the 30th September to the streaming service.
As i’m sure many of you will remember, Amanda Knox was accused of brutal killing her British roommate Meredith Kercher in 2007. She was convicted and acquitted twice by Italian courts, but the entire incident became the subject of global speculation, as non-stop media attention fed the public’s fascination through every twist and turn of the nearly decade-long case.
In a world that remains strongly divided on the legal findings, Amanda Knox goes beyond guilt or innocence to shed new light on the events and circumstances of the past nine years. Featuring unprecedented access to key people involved and never-before-seen archival material, the film shifts between past to present, exploring the case from the inside out in exclusive interviews with Amanda Knox, her former co-defendant and ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, Italian prosecutor Giuliano Mignini and Daily Mail reporter Nick Pisa.
In an appropriate move given the media’s involvement with the case, Netflix have released two trailers. Each layered with a bias for and against Knox. It’s a great way to highlight just how easy it is to paint the story in the colour you think will ‘sell’ the most papers or click-throughs…
