    Excellent documentary. Riveting, moving. And the horrendous nature of this particular event triggers an extraordinarily balanced presentation of the arguments about the death penalty.

    [A] desperately sad yet compelling doc digs deep into the events that led to and followed the tragedy. [26 Jul 2013, p.62]

    There is much more to the story than the graphic details of the invasion and whether the police could have intervened earlier. The case became a pivotal issue in the debate over the death penalty in Connecticut and that's a big part of the film.
