Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The made-for-TV Murder in Greenwich is a true crime story with a twist: the sleuth in pursuit of the truth here is former LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman, who gained infamy during the O.J. Simpson trial. Greenwich opens in 1997 with Fuhrman (Christopher Meloni of Oz), having relocated to Idaho and become a successful author, obsessed by the murder of Martha Moxley, a young woman from a wealthy Connecticut family who was brutally killed by an unknown assailant 22 years earlier. Fuhrman heads east, where his presence causes friction with the local law. But with the help of a retired cop (Robert Forster) who worked on the case, Fuhrman cuts through a maze of mismanaged investigations and cover-ups to place new suspicion on Moxley's wastrel neighbors, the Skakel brothers, who have familial ties to the Kennedys. Excellent performances by Meloni and Forster and direction make this a worthwhile case for true-crime buffs. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and informative June 27, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
After reading the book (you know the book is always better) I was just sure the movie couldn't live up to that. You do, in fact, get more from the book, but I thought the movie did a fine job telling Martha's story. The way the actress (I can't remember her name) narrated the story as if it were really Martha telling it was very compelling. It sort of drew you in to the story and made it more personal. I found it to be a well-acted and well told story. Thank goodness Mr. Fuhrman did get involved and helped to get this case solved. The one crucial thing that needed to be done was to bring justice to a beautiful young girl and her family and to have her story tastefully told and I think both the movie and the book did just that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping January 10, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I looked in every book and cranny I could find about the Moxley murder through the years. I have always been intrigued by the case and wondered why it took so long for someone to finally put this into television/movie form. If the Moxley murder interests you, I highly recommend this movie. It compliments the book nicely and gives a unique, creative perspective to looking through the glass darkly. I am convinced they finally got the right man, even though I don't necessarily agree with the way it all went down. Just think... if those rich folks had only told the TRUTH in the beginning and accepted the punishment, Michael would have been charged as a juvenile and most likely been out by now! He would have hopefully gotten some help and possibly even turned into a productive member of society. Instead, his own family contributed to his personal hell by bouncing him around reform schools and such, only adding to his misery, as well as to that of the Moxleys. The state attorney's office and those corrupt officials who sat and did NOTHING on this case for twenty something years should truly be ashamed of themselves. It's despicable and disgraceful! God Bless the Moxley family who had to wait so long to see justice for Martha. I'm glad the story continues to be told, that we shall never forget what happened to this beautiful, young lady in the town of Greenwich on Hacker's night in 1975.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crime Drama April 2, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love crime drama. I love true stories. This DVD is about a real crime that took place years ago and was never solved...

Perhaps this was God's plan for Mark Furman...to solve the murder of this young girl years after her death. I'll bet that Mark Furman would have never looked into this murder, had the OJ Trial NOT turned out the way it did...sorry OJ had to go free, but OJ will be punished for his crime..in God's time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better January 5, 2013
By J.J.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember Martha Moxley's murder as I was around her age when it happened. I enjoyed Mark Fuhrman's book however, I think there could have been a better job done with this movie. The music gave it a haunting mood, but it was so shallow and left out so much of how that creep Michael Skaekel and his uber-rich family did everything in their power to bury this by pure avoidance of the law using their name, money, political connections and big-time lawyers to do their dirty work (Chappaquiddick anyone?). I would love to see a real movie with the in-depth murder, history of the Skaekels, Moxley's, the years and years of time and people involved to finally put this sad tale to rest. I give Mark Fuhrman kudos for working on this case and finally getting some satisfaction by putting a murderer in jail after that joke of a trial and horrible double murder he got sucked into that ultimately made a mockery of everything and let a killer have a not guilty verdict. We all will stand before God on judgement day, and I have no pity for murders and people who balantly cover for a murderer(s).

It was ok. Certainly a different way of presenting the events. I was looking for a more "Forensic Files" type of factual presentation. Read more
