This review is from: The Brandon Teena Story [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Seldom does a documentary film give such depth and background to a story. These filmmakers spent years in the courtroom and with the victims' families as well as the families of the killers. The obvious cooperation of law enforcement, media and members of the community is because of the attitude of Muska and Olafsdottir. They never succumbed to the promotion of the sensational aspects of the crime which prompted some lurid headlines.Without losing their objectivity, they maintained their compassion for all those involved. As someone who spent five years following this case as a reporter, I can vouch for its accuracy.
