  1. The first one sounds really good! I wonder if he was wrongfully convicted? The second one sounds intriguing but we will need the trailer to see if it’s boring.

    1. I haven't investigated the case, but the court battle did last for 16 freaking years.

  2. The Staircase sounds good. I followed the trial and they did seem to have the evidence they needed to convict him.

  5. I enjoyed watching Colin Firth not that long ago in Supernova, along with Stanley Tucci. He was good in it, they both were. 🙂

  7. Oooh, Colin will make a great murderer! I always thought he should have more sinister roles. I'll have to look this story up. I can't believe the trial went on for 16 years. Whatever happened to a fair and speedy trial?
