A new movie, titled ‘The Free World,’ premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and it’s kind of creepy how similar it is to Netflix’s current hit, ‘Making A Murderer.’ However, this new movie is fiction. But regardless, as huge ‘Making A Murderer’ fans, we can’t wait to see it!
Have you been dying for someone to make a movie about Netflix’s hot new true crime series, Making A Murderer? Well, look no further, because a new movie just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and it could practically be a fictionalized version of the documentary. The Free World is about a man exonerated for his crimes and then, something happens that might jeopardize that newfound freedom. Watch the actors and writer/director talk about the new movie here!
“The Free World is about a man who is recently exonerated for crimes he didn’t commit, and he’s struggling to readjust to society. And at that time, a woman in crisis comes into his life and forces him to make a decision that might jeopardize that newfound freedom,” writer and director Jason Lew said in an interview at Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 25.
To hear what Jason thinks about Making A Murderer and how his project is eerily similar, watch the video above!
