Recently nominated for a 2012 IDA Documentary Award for Best Feature and on the roster for the upcoming 2012 AFI Film Festival, The Central Park Five is based on Sarah Burns' best-selling book. In 1989, five black and Latino teens were arrested and charged for brutally raping a white woman in Central Park. After the five had spent years in prison for a crime they didn't commit, the truth finally came out about what happened that night.
The film will open in New York on November 23.
