Roman Polanski is, no doubt about it, a criminal who's managed to avoid justice for years. At the same time, the U.S. legal system subjected both him and his victim to a twisted sham of a process that's horrifying to learn about. It's telling that the victim says that she's been hurt twice, first by Polanski and second by the terrible system. The documentary has some flaws, but it's still absolutely worth watching.

wow! answers many questions and creates conversations. the "victim" was a victim of her mothers greed and her ability to look a lot older then 13 years. Plus, the judge was arrogant and really out of line. a good watch AND watch the features.

Really good documentary. I had just finished reading The Girl by Samantha Geimer, and had to see this doc. There is a lot of misinformation about this rape case and Polanski's fleeing the country which makes it sound like Polanski was fleeing judgment. In fact he worked with the police and the court, served prison time as well. But it was due to a judges decision to go back on the plea deal that caused Polanski to leave. Very interesting documentary which enlightens what appears to be a black and white case.

This documentary is very informative, but clearly skewed in favor of Polanski.
