Capturing the Friedmans


This documentary takes a look at the arrest, trial and conviction of two alleged child molesters. Starting at Thanksgiving, 1987, we follow events as the police swoop on the home of a respected teacher, and arrest him and his youngest son. As the suspicious investigation progresses, and the trial follows, the viewer is left to draw their own conclusions about who was guilty, who was innocent, and whether justice was done.
