Amanda Knox's Unbelievable Story To Be Told In Netflix Documentary… From TWO Opposing Viewpoints!

Filed under: Film FlickersViolenceNetflix

Amanda Knox's story is one we'll never forget.

Now that it's been nine years since Amanda's former roommate Meredith Kercher was murdered, Netflix is about to release a documentary about the unbelievable tale… only they're presenting it from both sides!

For those who haven't followed the story, in 2007, Amanda was just an innocent and naive college student studying abroad in Perugia, Italy when her housemate Meredith was brutally murdered. The student from London was stabbed multiple times and sexually assaulted in a vicious attack that left the otherwise peaceful city devastated.

Unfortunately for Amanda and her then-boyfriend Raffaelle Sollecito, the two were convicted in the court of public opinion despite forensic evidence directly linking a drifter named Rudy Guede to the murder.

While Rudy was sentenced to thirty years in October 2008 for the crime, Knox and Raffalle were also found guilty despite zero hard evidence tying them to the horrific act. It wasn't until 2011 that the duo's convictions were overturned — a decision which was re-reversed in 2014 only to be changed AGAIN in their favor last year!

Now directors Rod Blackhurst and Brian McGinn are presenting both sides of the complicated story with the help of

Amanda Knox Murder Conviction Overturned

Filed under: Legal MattersViolence

Amanda Knox is a free woman.

On Friday, the Italian Supreme Court overturned her murder conviction for the 2007 slaying of their roommate, Meredith Kercher.

The conviction of Amanda' ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito — who was also found guilty of the crime — was also overturned.

Prosecutors argued that Amanda has orchestrated the murder, having Raffaele and a drifter named Rudy Guede hold down her roommate before slashing her throat.

The lurid crime fascinated Italy, the country where it occurred, as well as the roommates' native U.S. and Britain.

Naturally, Lifetime even made a TV movie out of the case and trial, with Hayden Panetierre starring as Amanda.

In a just-released statement, Amanda said she feels "relieved and grateful."

She added:

"The knowledge of my innocence has given me strength in the darkest times of this ordeal."
