Netflix’s new Amanda Knox documentary wants you to pick a side. Is she truly innocent or guilty of Meredith Kercher’s murder? The first chilling trailers for the doc will make you question everything you thought you knew about Amanda and the case. Click to WATCH!
The documentary, titled Amanda Knox, has released two trailers that offer polarizing views on her case. The “Suspect Her” trailer leads you to believe that maybe Amanda was involved in Meredith Kercher’s murder after all. “Of course she did it, she’s mad,” Daily Mail reporter Nick Pisa says in the trailer. Italian prosecutor Giuliano Mignini questions why Amanda falsely accused Congolese barman Patrick Lumumba of the murder if she was innocent.
Amanda, who is now 29, continues to deny she murdered Meredith, saying that this situation could have happened to anyone. “That’s everyone’s nightmare,” she says in the “Suspect Her” trailer. “Either I am a psychopath in sheep’s clothing or I am you.”
While the “Suspect Her” trailer makes you suspect Amanda again, the “Believe Her” trailer says the complete opposite. “I was so scared,” Amanda cries in the trailer. “I don’t know what else to say.”
This trailer takes a look at a Amanda before this shocking tragedy happened. She was young, ambitious and wanted to experience life. She went to Perugia, Italy, to get out of her comfort zone. But that decision changed her life forever. Amanda sobs in the documentary talking about how she was “just a child” when she was accused of Meredith’s murder at the age of 19.
Amanda Knox will investigate one of the world’s most notorious crimes. Amanda was an American student studying abroad in Italy when she was accused of murdering her roommate in 2007. She was convicted of the crime in an Italian court and spent nearly four years in prison. Amanda and ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, now 32, were acquitted of murder charges in 2015. Rudy Guede, now 29, was found guilty of the sexual assault and murder of Meredith in 2008. He was drug dealer at the time of the murder.
The documentary, which premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 9, will be released on Netflix on Sept. 30.
