Attention, Law & Order fans: The verdict on Jean-Xavier de Lestrade’s Oscar-winning doc is that it surpasses any TV drama. Lestrade investigates the Florida murder of elderly tourist Mary Ann Stephens and tries to divine how shy teen Brenton Butler wound up facing life in prison. (He was ultimately acquitted.) Seeing Perry Mason-like defender Patrick McGuinness reveal each wrongful police move – including racial profiling, brutality, a forced confession – leaves us captivated and incensed. A must-see expose on the hidden prejudices and failures of our justice system.
