Thomas Lang is a film director who is offered the chance to adapt a book by American journalist Simone Ford, which recounts the controversial trial of American student Jessica Fuller for the murder of her flatmate Elizabeth Pryce. To help with his research, Simone takes Thomas to Siena, where he is disturbed by the media frenzy that has developed around the case.
Inspired by the killing of British student Meredith Kercher in Italy, Michael Winterbottom's film looks beyond the salacious headlines to explore both the media and the public's obsession with violent stories, whether fictional or real.
Starring Daniel Brühl, Kate Beckinsale and Cara Delevingne.
