Based on a book by Mark Fuhrman, MURDER IN GREENWICH is a brilliant and compelling chronicle of the events surrounding the former LAPD officer’s investigation into the unsolved murder of 15-year-old Martha Moxley.In the late 1990s, Mark Fuhrman (Christopher Meloni – TV’s “Oz,” “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit”) became obsessed with the unsolved murder of a young girl in Greenwich, Connecticut. The case, originally front-page news across the country when Kennedy nephews Tommy and Michael Skakel became prime suspects, had been all but forgotten. But with the determination of a pitbull and the assistance of Detective Steve Carroll (Robert Forster – Mulholland Drive, Jackie Brown), Fuhrman helped bring a murderer to justice and lift the veil of secrecy that kept this brutal crime a mystery for over twenty-five years.
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

Christopher Meloni is solid and does resemble Mark Fuhrman physically. The only casting that is lacking was the part of Dorothy Moxley, as the actress doesn't project the inner strength of the real article. This movie is worth the watch.
