Amanda Knox tells the story of an American exchange student Amanda Knox is convicted and eventually acquitted for the 2007 death of another student in Italy.
This one’s going to be short and brief, especially considering how this subject is one that’s still heavily debated.
To be quite honest, I had little to no knowledge of the case while it was occurring, or of even the events of the final acquittal in 2015 while I was living in London. It wasn’t, unfortunately, until I saw Michael Winterbottom’s failure of a film The Face of an Angel two years ago that I that I knew anything about it. Netflix’s Amanda Knox is definitely a more interesting stitching together of events that shows how ridiculously flawed the initial trial was.
I honestly believe, after doing previous research into the case after seeing Winterbottom’s film and before I knew about this documentary, that Knox was innocent. There was nothing that would logically make sense for her to murder Meredith Kercher. No matter how others may convince either myself or other supporters of Knox, the evidence just doesn’t add up.
If you’re on either side, or even just sitting on the fence, this documentary is definitely worth the watch and an interesting read.
