Produced and presented by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, the film recaps the case of Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, three teenagers accused and found guilty of the heinous murders of Stevie Branch, Chris Byers and Michael Moore. But while their convictions were swift, it soon came to light that not only were they innocent, that there was much more to the investigation that prosecutors failed to look into, favoring expediency over getting to the truth. And that's where "West of Memphis" goes, in a film that apparently not so subtly suggets the person who committed the crimes is still free.
Earning raves at Sundance earlier in the year, Sony Pictures Classics will release the film on Christmas Day. Watch below and check out the new poster as well.
