Editorial Reviews

Hayden Panettiere (Heroes) and Marcia Gay Harden (Academy Award winner for Pollock) star in the Lifetime Original Movie AMANDA KNOX: MURDER ON TRIAL IN ITALY based on the international headline-grabbing story of the now infamous American exchange student accused by Italian authorities of brutally killing her roommate. AMANDA KNOX: MURDER ON TRIAL IN ITALY poses the question of whether Knox (Panettiere), the Seattle honors student accused of murdering her college roommate Meredith Kercher (Amanda Fernando Stevens) in 2007 with her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito (Paolo Romio) and acquaintance Rudy Guede (Djirbi Kebe), actually committed the crime or was herself a victim.

Customer Reviews

Well, you and I both know the reason: people are not objective, just like this film.
California Dreaming
No thought was given to the victim, to the two obviously innocent people convicted of her murder and currently held in an Italian prison, or to the families.
Joan C. James
While the film doesn't make an outright proclamation of actual events, it certainly seems to endorse the position that Knox is guilty.
K. Harris

The movie was very good. Makes me want to dig into the truth about the events that took place. As I don't always catch the news I do not know if the movie portrayed the truth or fiction of what happened but I will probably look online now to find out my own answers to compare to the movie. I liked it. If you were interested in this event you will like to see the movie's portrayal.

Engaging film. I remember this news story and watched interviews, but didn't know the full background. The movie will draw you in for the entire duration of the film.

The irresponsible inaccuracies in this production are bad enough, but the editing of the documentary that followed the original airing was deplorable.

The original documentary included forensic evidence and absence of evidence commentary which clearly showed that Amanda and Raffaele could not have been involved in the crime, as the appeals court eventually ruled.

But I guess that would have damaged the titillation factor that Lifetime was gunning for. It's sad that human lives are held hostage to our insatiable demand for entertainment. Things haven't changed since the Roman Holidays at the Coliseum.

Gives a clear idea of what actually went on in that town in Italy when a young woman was brutally murdered, whatever side you are on.

Anyone familiar with the realm of Lifetime made-for-TV movies can readily identify their "ripped from the headlines" approach toward notorious legal cases. This tried and true formula has been evidenced in countless Lifetime films through the years and I'm quite sure that there will be little deviation from established success. At times, though, one would have to consider--when is it too soon? With the 2011 premiere of "Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy," the question becomes all the more relevant. The movie aired in February, just two months after an appeal was granted for the real life Knox and in the same month her parents were indicted by Italian police for abuse claims they were making publicly. In reality, this particular incident is still very much under scrutiny and alive in the legal system. So to have it tried as a fictionalized TV movie seems somehow suspect. While the film doesn't make an outright proclamation of actual events, it certainly seems to endorse the position that Knox is guilty. And whether or not she is--it seems that there is no need to unnecessarily muddy the waters with a "based on" accounting that amounts to a great deal of fiction for dramatic purposes.

Off my soapbox, I will now look at "Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy" as a purely fabricated account for entertainment purposes. Hayden Panettiere portrays Knox, an American student studying in Italy who is accused of participating in the sexual assault and murder of her British roommate. Her actions, along with her boyfriend, are immediately drawn into question when the body is discovered at the beginning of the film. With her story not ringing true, Knox is subjected to an intense police investigation in which her story varies dramatically along the way.

An absolute terrible film. Completely inaccurate to the point of defamation. Badly written and acted. It's obvious no actual research was done about the circumstances of the actual events. It seems as though the actors and writers used The Daily Mail as their guide. Full of yellow journalism and tabloid sensationalism.

Doesn't really give facts. There is a lot of assumption here. The acting is not great, and it seems like they are glamorizing the sad murder.
